FAST taps owner NAB for new CEO

by Mackenzie McCarty11 Sep 2012

Aggregator FAST has appointed a new CEO, sourcing him from the ranks of NAB's executive team.

FAST has announced in a statement that Brendan Wright will take over the reins as CEO of FAST from 1 October.

Wright was most recently general manager of distribution for NAB Small Business, but has held a number of senior roles at NAB across business banking, personal banking and agri banking, as well as credit and risk.

General manager of Advantedge broker platforms and former FAST CEO Steve Kane said Wright had solid banking, distribution and leadership experience that would strongly support the FAST team in future growth.

“I am confident Brendan will further develop relationships with our FAST brokers and our lender partners," he said.

The appointment sees the end of David O'Toole's tenure as acting CEO. O'Toole will step back into his previous role as national sales manager at FAST.

    David O'Toole has a tremendous passion and committment you rarely find these days and its a shame he did not get the nod. If Wright can bring one tenth of David's energy to the job then FAST will be ok. Wright seems to have had a lot of jobs within NAB that haven't lasted for long periods. I wish him well and every success
