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.

Seeing the criminal and unjust issue of non-payment and late payment in the construction industry, along with the lack of avenues to recoup lost money, Cam was spurred on to find a fair solution for tradies and homeowners.
