New director

The Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia has appointed two new independent directors to its board, following the departure of two key members.

Vladimir Malcik, director of Baillieu Knight Frank and member of the CPA Australia Governance Centre of Excellence, will become chair of the MFAA’s Audit and Risk Committee, while Joshua Hatten – until recently the chief of staff to the NSW Minister of Education will step into the role of chair for the MFAA Nominations Remuneration and Governance Committee.

The directors commenced their three-year terms on 31 May, filling the holes left by the departure of board members Michael Cottier and Malcolm Watkins.

Mr Cottier’s exit is the result of his appointment as an independent non-executive director of BT Financial Group, while Mr Watkins stepped down from the board in December 2016. The association said it was “deeply grateful” for their “hard work and expertise over many years”.

The MFAA also highlighted Mr Malcik’s time spent in company secretary roles at Suncorp and Lend Lease, and Mr Hatten’s “deep expertise in education and governance”.
