A career advocacy group for women in financial services has appointed an executive director to lead its new growth initiatives.
Financial Executive Women (FEW) has named former Bendigo and Adelaide Bank executive Alex Tullio as a new executive director on its board.
She has been tasked with leading the organisation’s new growth initiatives.
FEW founder Judith Beck commented: “We are fortunate to have someone of Alex Tullio’s calibre and experience to spearhead FEW’s new initiatives into its new phase of growth.
“We are at a period of substantial growth and we need additional leadership to successfully implement our strategy.”
Ms Tullio has worked in financial services for more than 20 years, having held a number of senior leadership roles at organisations such as IOOF and Bendigo Bank, and more recently as the chief executive and founder of her own business.
“In addition, as a member of the FEW advisory board for the past six years, Alex has acted as an advocate, has a strong understanding of our members, corporate partners and FEW’s role in the industry working towards the Positive Progression of Women,” Ms Beck added.
Ms Tullio commented she is excited to be part of the future growth of FEW.
“I am passionate about women, leadership and business – so making the decision to be part of this amazing organisation was an easy one,” she said.
“FEW already has a hugely positive impact on our members and the financial services industry – and we are just getting started! The opportunity for us to continue to build and serve our community is huge, and exciting.”
FEW was founded by Ms Beck in 2013 to provide a career advocacy program for women within financial services.
