People’s Choice CEO announces retirement

Peter Evers, chief executive of People’s Choice Credit Union, has announced his retirement after 15 years in the role.

Mr Evers has led the growth of People’s Choice to become one of Australia’s leading credit unions through the 2009 merger of Australian Central Credit Union (of which he became CEO in 2000) and Savings & Loan Credit Union.

According to Mr Evers, retirement is never an easy decision, but it was one that he had been contemplating for a long time.

“My decision reflects my confidence that the time is right for me to hand the reins to a new chief executive to lead People’s Choice through its next phase of growth,” he said.

“We have a strong, experienced executive team and more than 1,100 committed staff who I know will continue to serve our members and ensure People’s Choice’s success well into the future.”

John Cossons, chair of People’s Choice, said the board wishes Mr Evers well with his retirement and is grateful for his commitment to the credit union over the past 27 years.

“Under Peter’s leadership, People’s Choice has grown to become one of Australia’s largest mutual banking organisations, serving more than 345,000 members with in excess of $9 billion in assets under management and advice,” he said.

Mr Evers will step down from his role on 25 September, with Darlene Mattiske-Wood, executive general manager of organisational development at People’s Choice, to step in as acting CEO while the board searches for a new chief executive.

“Darlene’s 12 years’ experience with People’s Choice and her expertise in organisational development and change management, together with her focus on the best interests of members, staff and the organisation, makes her well suited to guide People’s Choice through this period,” Mr Cossons said.
