Goldfields Money Limited has announced the appointment of Jussi Nunes as its new group chief financial officer (CFO), effective 10 December, following its merger with mortgage aggregator Finsure.
Mr Nunes, who will become a member of Goldfields’ executive management team, will assume overall responsibility for both the banking and aggregation activities of the group, with Malcolm Cowell continuing as the CFO of the banking activities of the bank and will report to Mr Nunes in his new role.
Goldfields has also announced that Kylie Turner has left her role as CFO of Finsure. Ms Turner has assumed the role of CFO at Heffron SMSF Solutions.
Newly appointed CFO Jussi Nunes has over 18 years of experience within the banking and financial services sector.
Mr Nunes will join Goldfields from Commonwealth Bank (CBA), where he has served as general manager, business product finance.
Prior to joining CBA, Mr Nunes served as global head of finance, group treasury and balance sheet trading at ANZ.
The new appointee is also a member of the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT).
Commenting on the appointment, Goldfields managing director Simon Lyons said: “We are absolutely delighted that an experienced professional such as Jussi has decided to join our bank in the group CFO position, at such an important stage of our development in our digital banking journey.
“With his impressive track record and excellent leadership skills, Jussi will be a valuable addition to the executive team of our business.
“He will lead a strong finance team but will also be a great contributor to group strategy and will help us grow.”
The CFO appointment follows Treasurer Josh Frydenberg’s approval of the merger between Goldfields Money and Finsure, in which over 40.7 million Goldfields Money shares were issued to Finsure’s shareholders.
