Brokers appointed to MFAA board

The Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia has appointed two directors to its board following a seven-week nomination and election process.

During the Annual General Meeting of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) in Sydney on 22 November, members elected Rose De Rossi and Melissa Gielnik to the board of directors.

Director of Diversifi in Western Australia Rose De Rossi has been newly appointed to the MFAA board after several years of active membership.

Owner and operator of Smart Lending in Victoria Melissa Gielnik has been re-elected as MFAA director for a second term.


Ms Gielnik has also been appointed as deputy chairman, with chairman-elect Donna Beazley filling the vacancy left by the departure of former chairman Cynthia Grisbrook.   

“The MFAA now has a great mix of experience and expertise on the Board and a highly effective executive team, leaving the organisation well positioned to tackle the challenges that
lie ahead,” chairman-elect Donna Beazley said.

Ms Beazley also thanked outgoing chairman Ms Grisbook and former director Murray Cowan for their service.

“The MFAA Board wishes to recognise retiring chairman Cynthia Grisbrook and retiring director Murray Cowan and to thank them for their service to the MFAA and the mortgage industry,” the chairman-elect said.

“Cynthia has been on the Board for the past six years and has dedicated a significant amount of her time to the MFAA in leading the organisation during what has been a critical period for our industry and for which we are most grateful.”
