He joins the FMA from the NZ Super Fund, having worked there since 2009. In this capacity he worked as its Head of Communications as well as maintaining a position on the group’s investments team. Prior stops also include media-focused roles at Macquarie Group, SKYCITY and Westpac.
The FMA has recently embarked on several tranches of hires to its executive leadership team over the past few months. In October, the FMA made a series of appointments that included Nick Kynoch, Sarah Coleman, Garth Stanish and Simone Robbers. This wave of executives represented the second group of moves since June 2015, when the FMA had announced new roles for Liam Mason, Garth Stanish, John Botica, and Diana Christensen.
Earlier this year, the FMA also moved forward with its newly christened flagship regulatory regime, releasing its annualized report for 2015 that underscored a number of key provisions and activity highlights. Having already been one of the more active entities in the regulatory space in recent years, the FMA’s report focused on a re-organization of its priorities and a unified operating model for conduct regulation that had already begun to coalesce over the previous months.
