MFAA director to step down from board

by AB04 Jan 2017
The Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) announced today that Director Malcolm Watkins has not sought re-appointment to the Board following the expiration of his current one-year term.

Appointed in 2015, Watkins remains passionate about the important role the MFAA plays in advocating on behalf of the broking industry, and will remain in his leading role on the lobbying committee.

“I have enjoyed my time serving on the Board of the MFAA. It is essential that we continue to focus on protecting the health and prosperity of the broking industry in the face of potential economic and political headwinds, so I have offered my ongoing support to the Board and the Association,” Watkins said.

MFAA Chairman Cynthia Grisbrook thanked Watkins for his contribution over the past twelve months and looked forward to the continued relationship in his revised role.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Malcolm for his contribution over the past year,” Grisbrook said. “While he will no longer be a member of the Board, he will remain a source of support and expertise for the MFAA, and I look forward to working with him in the future in his role on our lobbying committee, but also as a key industry expert we will continue to look to for advice.”
