Raj Venja, CEO and ombudsman at the CIO, said the depth of Mr Gough’s regulatory experience makes him “eminently qualified” for the role of deputy ombudsman.

“Tim brings to the role enormous intellectual rigour and extensive experience in financial services law,” he said. “He is well regarded by both consumer and industry stakeholders.”

Mr Gough will commence the role on an initial 12-month contract in early April.
