SuiteBox, the mobile office solution for the financial services industry, has appointed former AIG Life Australia boss David Whyte as Chairman and Craig Anderson as a Director of the Board.

Ian Dunbar, SuiteBox CEO, said, “With our planned geographical expansion and user-growth plans, SuiteBox management and founders believe that an experienced board is critical in providing sage guidance and direction to our growth focused strategy. I’m delighted that David has agreed to Chair SuiteBox’s board and also to have Craig’s corporate advisory skills on the board.”

Mr Whyte formerly led American International Group (AIG) life operations in NZ and Australia, and served on the Board of Fidelity Life and Southern Response Earthquake Services Ltd, a Crown-owned entity. He is a Chartered Member of the NZ Institute of Directors, and serves on a number of privately owned financial services organisations’ boards.

Mr Anderson runs his own capital advisory and management consulting firm.

“Financial services professionals, such as financial advisers, mortgage brokers, accountants and insurance providers face challenges on multiple fronts, but we’re convinced that the best businesses will not only survive, but thrive. By embracing technology and innovation financial services professionals have the opportunity to create truly mobile virtual meetings between themselves and their clients and SuiteBox is excited to be at the forefront of delivering mobile office solutions globally,” said Dunbar.
