A specialist retirement funding provider has expanded its team, adding two C-suite executives.
Household Capital has appointed Luke Rattigan to the newly created role of chief operating officer, with a primary focus to scale the business for further growth.
He has joined the company from consumer electronics start-up Nura, where he was chief commercial officer. He has also previously worked as COO at Sportsbet, as well as professional information solutions provider RELX Group.
Mr Rattigan has also been an economist for the Productivity Commission.
Household Capital chief executive Josh Funder commented: “Luke brings demonstrable experience in scaling new and innovative businesses.”
Meanwhile Chris Bishop, who has worked with the company as a consultant since 2018 in credit management policy, has taken the role of chief credit officer. He will continue to provide credit policy and procedures development, implementation and management, as well as credit approval authority.
Mr Bishop was the first person to be head of CBA retail bank compliance and is a previous director of the Legal Australian Bankers’ Association and previous head of credit for Telstra.
Mr Funder commented: “With superannuation and investment portfolios decimated, and dividends and term deposits at all-time lows, Australian retirees need help to fund their retirement.”
“We are delighted Chris has agreed to join us on a full-time basis. His expertise will [help us continue] delivering innovative solutions to provide Australians with flexibility and choice in retirement and importantly the confidence to live well at home.”
