Prior to establishing Afterpay, Nick launched the leading American online jeweller, Ice.com, into Australia under the local brand Iceonline.com.au. Given Nick’s family has been in the Australian jewellery industry for the past 30 years, he was able to combine specialised local product knowledge with technical online marketing expertise to exploit on the gap in the market.
