Fintech start-up SuiteBox has appointed former AIG Life Australia boss David Whyte as its new chairman.
Mr Whyte formerly led American International Group (AIG) life operations in NZ and Australia, and served on the board of Fidelity Life and Southern Response Earthquake Services, a Crown-owned entity.
He is a chartered member of the NZ Institute of Directors and serves on a number of privately owned financial services organisations’ boards.
“With our planned geographical expansion and user-growth plans, SuiteBox management and founders believe that an experienced board is critical in providing sage guidance and direction to our growth-focused strategy,” SuiteBox chief executive Ian Dunbar said.
"I’m delighted that David has agreed to chair SuiteBox’s board and also to have Craig’s corporate advisory skills on the board,” Mr Dunbar said, adding that Craig Anderson has also been appointed to the board.
Mr Anderson is a securities and property investor and a specialist in insurance risk assessment of listed securities offers and IPOs.
He was the founder and formerly managing director of Dual Insurance NZ, and prior to that, general manager of QBE’s corporate and specialist Risks Division NZ.
“Financial services professionals, such as financial advisers, mortgage brokers, accountants and insurance providers face challenges on multiple fronts, but we’re convinced that the best businesses will not only survive, but thrive,” Mr Dunbar said.
“By embracing technology and innovation, financial services professionals have the opportunity to create truly mobile virtual meetings between themselves and their clients, and SuiteBox is excited to be at the forefront of delivering mobile office solutions globally.”
