The Financial Services Federation (FSF) has announced its new executive committee, including Turners Automotive Group CEO Todd Hunter as chair. 

Following a members’ election, successful candidates were announced at the FSF’s annual meeting last week, at which its annual report for the financial year 2022/23 was also released.

The FSF is the industry body representing non-bank finance providers – currently 95 members – operating in Aotearoa New Zealand that are committed to responsible and ethical lending.

New appointments to the FSF’s executive committee are:

  • Don Atkinson, CEO, UDC Finance Ltd
  • Jasmine Sim, CFO, Speirs Finance Group
  • Chris Lamers, CEO, MTF Finance
  • Simon Scott, Chief Executive, First Credit Union

They will be joined by existing executive committee members: Todd Hunter, group CEO, Turners Automotive Group (new chair); Jane Dunkerley, CEO, Centracorp Finance (new deputy chair); Neil Simons, director, Latitude Financial Ltd; and James Searle, general manager, DPL Insurance.

Executive director Lyn McMorran thanked the committee members who did not seek re-election for their service, particularly former deputy chair Mark Spring, and former chair Mark Mountcastle. 

“The FSF is extremely grateful to Mark Mountcastle and Mark Spring for their exceptional guidance and service to the FSF in their roles as chair and deputy chair respectively,” McMorran said.

“I would personally like to thank them for their dedication to the Federation and commitment to ensuring we achieve our strategic objectives and continue to add value for our members.”

In his final address to members as chair, Mountcastle said in the latest annual report: “As I hand over the reins to fresh leadership, I am totally confident in the belief that the FSF is in very good heart, with a positive and exciting future to look forward to.”

McMorran said, in welcoming the new committee members: “We are entering 2024 with record membership numbers as more and more organisations realise the value of connectivity and a collective voice that their association provides.

“The new executive committee is a fitting representation of both the calibre and diversity of members.”
