Women left off MFAA board

Staff Reporter 4 minute read

The MFAA Board currently has no female representatives – an issue they are looking to combat.

Speaking to The Adviser yesterday, the MFAA president Joe Sirianni said if no women are elected to the board after all the state elections are held, the board may look to appoint a woman.

“It is definitely something I am considering. If we have no women on the board then it is not truly reflective of the industry and it is my duty to make sure this is not the case,” he said.

CBA’s executive general manager third party banking Kathy Cummings told The Adviser that it was critically important to have female representatives on the MFAA Board because they facilitate discussion.

“There is no diversity at the CEO level in broking at the moment. This is something that needs to change,” she said.

Mr Sirianni agreed with Ms Cummings and went on to say more female representation was needed in the mortgage broking industry in general.

“We are always trying to encourage women into the industry. We have established the women in business network and which we use to highlight the benefits of being a mortgage broker – such as flexible hours,” he said.

“We are always looking at ways we can drum up more female interest in this industry. Females make excellent mortgage brokers because they are passionate and trustworthy.”
