MyState Ltd has appointed Gary Dickson as its new chief financial officer (CFO), effective immediately.
MyState welcomed Mr Dickson to the permanent role, noting that he has over 25 years of experience in senior financial roles.
Prior to joining MyState, he held the CFO position at ME Bank for six years, as well as serving as CFO for AXA Australia for five years prior to that.
He has also held senior positions at Colonial First State Group, Portfolio Partners and Commonwealth Bank.
Commenting on the permanent appointment of Mr Dickson, MyState managing director and CEO Melos Sulicich said: “I am delighted to formally welcome Gary to the role of chief financial officer for MyState.
“Gary has a wealth of experience in finance and treasury and has demonstrated his capability in the role of acting CFO.
“I look forward to working closely with him as we progress MyState’s ongoing strategy and growth plans.”
Mr Dickson will be reporting to Mr Sulicich until July this year, following the announcement that Mr Sulicich intends to step down from his role as chief executive.
According to Mr Sulicich, who first joined the company in 2014, the decision has been spurred by the wish to move from Tasmania back to Sydney for personal reasons.
