What’s the Upfront Pay story?

Our story started because a Sunshine Coast tradie was tired of not being paid and chasing late payments, and hearing the same issues from his friends, so he decided to do something about it. Cam Hodges is the founder and CEO of Upfront Pay. He is a concreting contractor and company owner, with a degree in Criminal Justice.
