The association announced yesterday that Siobhan Hayden, a former partner at Finware Australia, will take over the reins from Mr Naylor.
“Having been at Finware Australia for the past eight years, Siobhan brings to the role extensive knowledge of the mortgage broking industry, as well as a wealth of expertise in HR and management gained in roles with Woolworths and Guinness,” the MFAA said in a statement.
“Her formal education includes an MBA from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management, a Diploma in Project Management, and a Bachelor of Commerce, Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations,” it said.
MFAA President Tim Brown said the board is very excited about the appointment of Ms Hayden to the role of CEO.
"Her connection with brokers and the industry over the past eight years adds real value,” Mr Brown said.
Ms Hayden said of her appointment: "I’m really enthusiastic about meeting with members as soon as I can to find out what’s important to them and what we can do to add real value to their businesses.
"Phil Naylor is leaving the Association in formidable shape and I’m hoping to work directly with the MFAA’s customers to increase engagement and the profile of the Association even further."
