Fixed income dealer FIIG Securities has appointed two non-executive directors to its board, bringing the number of directors to five.
Christine Feldmanis and Stephen Knight bring a combined 65 years of experience in Australian markets and fixed income to the board.
Ms Feldmanis will take on the position of chair for the audit, risk and compliance committee, while Mr Knight will become a member of the same committee as well as the nominations and remuneration committee.
FIIG Securities chairman Douglas Bates said, “We’re very pleased to welcome Christine and Stephen to the FIIG Securities board of directors.
“Both join with considerable experience and expertise in senior executive positions, and as directors, in the private and public sectors, bringing extensive knowledge of the fixed income asset class, the financial services landscape in Australia, and corporate governance.”
Both Ms Feldmanis and Mr Knight hold chair and non-executive director positions at other companies.
Ms Feldmanis was a former chief financial officer at NSW Treasury Corporation and a former managing director at Treasury Group Investment Services, and holds non-executive director or non-executive chairman roles at Perpetual Equities Investment, Bell Asset Management and Uniting Financial Services.
Mr Knight was chief executive at NSW Treasury Corporation for 10 years and holds a non-executive director role at OneVue Group, a director role at Primary Ethics and was director for the Australian Financial Markets Association for 19 years.
“Christine and Stephen complement the skills and experience of the existing directors, resulting in a board with the depth and breadth to take FIIG forward as it continues its growth strategy and vision of providing industry-leading fixed income investment services for our clients," Mr Bates said.
