Former mayor joins KiwiSaver scheme

Former Wellington mayor Justin Lester has joined Simplicity.

Monday, January 27th 2020, 3:40PM

He will work as a savings ambassador for the KiwiSaver scheme, focussing on growing the financial literacy of Simplicity’s new and existing members in the Wellington and central New Zealand regions.

He previously founded his own company Kapai, and, having grown up in a state house, knows the importance of saving for the future.

Sam Stubbs, Simplicity’s founder and managing director, said “Justin’s values match Simplicity's. He wants to help New Zealanders build their wealth and improve their financial literacy. With his moral compass, skills and heart, we’re very lucky to have him on the team."

“Simplicity’s purpose is to give New Zealanders dignity and choice in retirement, and get young New Zealanders into their own home faster. Justin is just the right person to help. We couldn’t be happier.”

Lester said he was looking forward to joining the Simplicity team and growing its brand and presence across New Zealand.

“I’ve admired Simplicity’s progress for several years and believe they are helping to revolutionise New Zealand’s financial sector. Simplicity is a non-profit KiwiSaver and fund manager, which makes them unique and highly appealing.”

Simplicity now has $1.5 billion in funds under management and more than 36,000 members.
