Ruan Wannenburg Head of Technology at RMB


As Head of Technology, Ruan Wannenburg leads an award-winning team for the RMB International division. He is key in driving innovative solutions for the African subsidiaries, from inception through to operationalisation. His extensive knowledge of the banking industry coupled with the years of implementing complex software solutions across the Americas and Africa, has seen him become a pivotal part of the RMB Management team.

Coming from humble beginnings, as a young graduate selling specialised head towels door-to-door, he has built a reputation for himself thanks to his passion for technology and aim to always stay ahead of today’s fast paced technology industry.

His track record across the various industries and projects, from textiles to the Olympic’s systems, is evidence of his burning desire to find new solutions to complex challenges for clients and businesses. This is evident in his division’s most recent solution of deploying OpenB@ancs that enables transactional systems across Africa to integrate with RMB over an open banking API layer. Ruan holds a degree in Information Systems from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. In his spare time, he partakes in endurance races, is an avid Google Contributor and photographer.
