Wisr announces change of Chief Executive Officer and appointment of Chief Operating Officer
ASX-listed Wisr have announced that Wisr’s current Chief Financial Officer, Andrew Goodwin (pictured), has been appointed to the role of Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.
This follows the termination of the employment of Chief Executive Officer Anthony Nantes by the Wisr Board.
Andrew has been instrumental in building Wisr’s business and treasury position over the past 6 years. He has extensive leadership experience in the Australian financial services industry and has successfully built and led the company’s relationships with capital markets institutions through a period of strong growth. He has also been key to formulating and executing Wisr’s current initiatives to maintain balance sheet strength and increase profitability.
Andrew had been identified as the lead CEO successor candidate as part of the Board’s ongoing succession planning programme. The directors have great confidence that he is the ideal candidate to lead Wisr through its next phase of profitable growth.
Wisr has commenced a search for a replacement Chief Financial Officer, given Andrew’s new role.
Wisr also announced the appointment of Joanne Edwards as Chief Operating Officer. Joanne is currently Wisr’s Chief Risk and Data Officer and has successfully led Wisr’s credit and risk functions since 2019. Before joining Wisr, Joanne was a senior risk management executive at Commonwealth Bank for many years. Joanne’s wealth of industry experience and deep credit and risk management expertise position her strongly to take on the expanded role of Chief Operating Officer.
