LIXI Australia has appointed Bruce Treloar as chief executive officer, effective 1 May 2014.
LIXI Australia chairman Paul Lahiff announced last week that Erik Fenna will step down as LIXI chief executive in late May after successfully delivering LIXI 2.0, the next generation of XML messaging standards, for the lending industry.
“I am enormously pleased with the success and rollout of LIXI 2.0, and with the involvement and contribution from such a wide range of industry players that has led to LIXI’s universal adoption. 2014/2015 will be a hallmark period of opportunity for the industry,” Mr Fenna said.
Mr Lahiff said he was pleased that the LIXI board had developed an effective succession planning process which had enabled the organisation to choose an accomplished executive in Bruce Treloar.
“Bruce comes to LIXI with a distinguished record in the finance sector, with senior roles at Westpac and Bank of Melbourne, and with particular strengths in key industry projects such as electronic conveyancing,” he said.
“We are looking forward to working with Bruce to build upon the excellent foundation created by Erik for the benefit of the whole of the lending industry.”
