“The IFSA Board is delighted to appoint John as its new CEO. He brings both stature and a wealth of experience to the position,” said IFSA Chair David Deverall on announcing the appointment.

From mid 2006 to December 2008, John Brogden was the CEO of health insurer Manchester Unity until its successful merger with HCF. He was the Independent Chairman of Abacus, the industry body
representing Australia’s credit unions, building societies and friendly societies from 2006 to 2009. Mr Brogden was a Member of the NSW Parliament from 1996 to 2005 and Leader of the Opposition
for three-and-a-half years from 2002 to 2005.

Mr Deverall also thanked outgoing CEO Richard Gilbert for his dedicated and effective service, both as Deputy CEO from 1998 till 2002 and as CEO from 2002 until his official retirement on 28 August.

“I am very much looking forward to the task of ensuring the industry achieves better public policy outcomes in areas such as retirement incomes policy, regulation of managed investments and life insurance. I also look forward to delivering the reforms that IFSA will be adopting as part of the Superannuation Member Charter which was released last month,” said Mr Brogden.

IFSA was formed in January 1998 and represents the investment, life insurance and financial services sector with more than $1.2 trillion in funds under management on behalf of ten million Australians.
IFSA has more than 140 financial services providers as members.
