Both Mr Gill and Mr Roday served as directors of the board during the insurance company’s listing on the ASX in 2014.

Genworth’s board thanked the outgoing board members for their “commitment, guidance and contribution” to the company during their six-year tenures.

As well as announcing the departure of Mr Gill and Mr Roday, the board also announced the names of their successors.

Likewise, tax lawyer Christine Patton will join the board on 1 September alongside Mr West.
