The chairman of an ASX-listed LMI provider has this week announced changes to the company’s board of directors.

In a trading update on Monday, Genworth chairman Richard Grellman revealed that the group’s CEO, Georgette Nicholas, has been appointed managing director of the company, while former Suncorp Bank CEO David Foster has been appointed a non-executive director, effective immediately.

Ms Nicholas was appointed chief executive officer on 3 February this year.

Over a 30-year career, she has successfully navigated challenging economic and market environments and developed the strategic acumen and leadership capabilities that position her well to lead our business into the future,” Mr Grellman said.

“I am delighted to have someone with the depth of Georgette’s experience join the Genworth board.”
