Breaking news: MFAA announces new CEO

The MFAA has today announced that its new CEO will be Siobhan Hayden, former partner at Finware Australia.

Having been at Finware Australia for the past eight years, Siobhan brings to the role extensive knowledge of the mortgage broking industry, as well as a wealth of expertise in HR and management gained in roles with Woolworths and Guinness. Her formal education includes an MBA from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management, a Diploma in Project Management, and a Bachelor of Commerce, Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations.

The MFAA Board undertook an extensive search, selection and interview process, in partnership with a specialist recruitment agency, to ensure the best person would fill the role and further develop the industry’s leading association.

“The Board is very excited about the appointment of Siobhan to the role of CEO,” said MFAA President Tim Brown. “Her connection with brokers and the industry over the past eight years adds real value.”

Siobhan’s first priority will be meeting with as many members as possible across metropolitan and regional areas around the country to find out what their challenges are and what they need from the MFAA.

“I’m really enthusiastic about meeting with members as soon as I can, to find out what’s important to them and what we can do to add real value to their businesses,” said Siobhan. “Phil Naylor is leaving the Association in formidable shape and I’m hoping to work directly with the MFAA’s customers to increase engagement and the profile of the Association even further.”

Siobhan officially starts at the MFAA today.
