“Until her recent retirement from the public service, Jan was a member of the Council of Financial Regulators, the Centre for International Finance and Regulation, the Financial Sector Advisory Committee and [on] the board of the Australian Reinsurance Committee of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation,” Mr Johnson said.

Meanwhile, Bank of Queensland (BOQ) has appointed former Citi executive John Lorimer as it new non-executive director.
