ASIC announces senior appointments
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has welcomed six new appointments to the Operations group and to the roles of Regional Commissioner in New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia.
Peter Dunlop will take on the role of Chief Financial Officer, Nicole Collins has been named the new Chief People Officer and Zak Hammer will commence as Executive Director, Operations in early 2022.
Reporting to Chief Operating Officer, Warren Day, these appointments bring technical expertise and industry experience to the ASIC team.
“The combined knowledge and experience of Zak, Peter and Nicole will support ASIC to deliver our priorities to achieve a fair, strong and efficient financial system for all Australians,” Joe Longo, Chair of ASIC, said.
“They will help us better identify and seize opportunities to enhance ASIC’s capabilities to work more efficiently and effectively in an environment that supports our people internally and our stakeholders externally.”
The Regional Commissioners actively support ASIC’s staff locally and maintain relationships with local stakeholders, including state governments, businesses and consumer groups.
Mark Adams has been appointed as Regional Commissioner for NSW in addition to his existing role as Senior Executive Leader of Strategic Intelligence and Coordinator of ASIC’s Innovation Hub. John Wallace will take on the role of Regional Commissioner of Victoria and will continue in his existing role as Senior Executive Leader of Specialist Services. Currently in a role with the Modernising Business Registers (MBR) program, Rhian Richards has also been appointed as Regional Commissioner for Western Australia.
“Our new Regional Commissioners join our current Regional Commissioners to provide leadership locally while contributing nationally to our regulatory and enforcement functions,” Longo said.
“These senior executive and regional appointments enhance the capabilities of the senior leadership team and dedicated team members to deliver on our strategic priorities as outlined in ASIC’s 2021-2025 Corporate Plan.”
