Mortgage and wealth group appoints new CFO

Centrepoint Alliance has announced the appointment of finance veteran John Cowan as its new chief financial officer.

Centrepoint includes a mortgage aggregator, Centrepoint Lending Solutions, and also offers accountancy, financial advice, funds management and insurance premium funding.

Mr Cowan joins the mortgage and wealth group with 25 years’ experience in senior roles across the Australian financial services sector.

His most recent role was chief operating officer at financial advice firm SFG Australia, and he has previously worked for accounting group WHK and health insurance company Bupa.

Centrepoint Alliance said Mr Cowan’s experience complements its management team as the group continues to deliver its growth strategy.

Mr Cowan’s appointment follows the resignation of Glenn Toohey as chief financial officer and company secretary.

John de Zwart, managing director of Centrepoint Alliance, thanked Mr Toohey for his contributions and for managing significant change during his time in the role.

“Glenn led the transformation of our finance functions and has played key roles in a number of strategic initiatives including our 2014 capital raising and the recent refinancing of bank facilities,” he said.

Mr Cowan will take over the role on 2 February.
