Hayden has founded and run successful businesses in both the Technology and Financial Services industries. He is also a keen amateur polo player.
In 2006 he started William Shaw Securities, a boutique investment management firm based in Sydney, Australia. It was around this time Hayden took up polo. Having grown up in country Australia around horses, he wanted to get back to riding and polo seemed like the perfect fit.
After selling his interest in his financial services companies Hayden founded MyCastingNet, a software company that provides casting software and technology solutions to the television industry. MyCastingNet is now the world’s premier online casting platform and casts Factual, Documentary and Reality formats in more than 10 countries.
His unique combination of experience in business and Technology combined with his love for horses and polo, is what drove Hayden to co-found IPA with Andrew.
