Iress has appointed a former AMP director and a former First State Super chief executive to its board as non-executive directors.
Trudy Vonhoff has over 20 years’ experience in retail banking, financial markets and investment, Iress said in a statement to the ASX.
Ms Vonhoff is currently a director of Credit Corp Group and Cuscal Limited. Past directorships include AMP Bank, Ruralco Holdings Limited, Tennis NSW and the Westpac Staff Superannuation Fund.
For 13 years, Ms Vonhoff held senior executive roles at Westpac and AMP across retail banking, finance, risk, technology & operations, and agribusiness.
In addition, Michael Dwyer brings over 35 years’ experience in superannuation and investment, including 14 years as chief executive of First State Super, Iress said.
Mr Dwyer is currently a director of TCorp (NSW Treasury Corporation), WSC Group, the Global Advisory Council of Tobacco Free Portfolios and the Sydney Financial Forum.
Since 1998, he has also been a director and subsequently chair of Australia for UNHCR, the private sector partner of the UN Refugee Agency, and is also a life member of ASFA and the Fund Executives Association.
“Trudy and Michael are hugely accomplished professionals and their experience in retail banking, financial markets, investments, operations and superannuation, and more broadly, will be invaluable as Iress continues to grow,” said Iress chair Tony D’Aloisio.
“Both Trudy and Michael have impressive experience in executive and governance roles and we look forward to them joining the Iress board of directors.”
Ms Vonhoff and Mr Dwyer’s appointments are effective from 1 February 2020. Iress said their appointments are part of the board renewal and succession process announced by the chair at the annual general meeting in May 2019.
