Darin Schade’s preselection announcement was left until the final day before he was revealed as the Liberal’s candidate for Melbourne.

A banker and finance professional, Schade has a degree from the University of Tasmania and Australian Graduate School of Management at UNSW.

He worked for the National Australia Bank (NAB) from 1988 to 2001 where he worked in areas including Business Systems Analysis, International Payments, and Business Marketing. He moved to the Merchant Acquiring area as Global Marketing Manager before becoming the Manager for Merchant Transaction Acquiring for Australia.

On his social media account, he describes his key experience and expertise is in cards and payments.

“With technology having a greater impact on this area than ever before, it is an exciting time to be working in this field,” he wrote.

Schade has recently worked in program delivery for various financial services institutions including CUA, NAB and Bendigo Bank.

He says his approach to project delivery “is to work with stakeholders to define requirements that are outcome focused rather than work towards an abstract set of technical outputs”.

Prior to running as the candidate for Melbourne, Schade worked as a consultant for Ozmosys and Inner Circle Consulting.

It would be a tough task for Schade to garner enough votes to win in Melbourne, but his preferences could be crucial in deciding the next member for the seat.
