Financial Advice NZ appoints two new directors

Financial Advice New Zealand has elected two new directors for its board after its AGM was held in Wellington today.

Monday, November 15th 2021, 5:05PM

Rupert Gough has been voted by members to be Financial Advice NZ's new Practitioner Director of Lending, while Lana Stockman has been appointed as an independent director.

They replace chairperson Sue Brown and Practitioner Director of Lending John Bolton, both of whom are stepping down after more than four years in their roles.

Independent board member Heather Roy will be acting chairperson until the next Financial Advice NZ board meeting in December when the board will confirm a new chairperson.

Gough has been in the finance industry for 13 years, founding and running the Mortgage Lab, which now has 27 advisers nationwide.

He was also head of home loans for mortgage and insurance aggregator Kepa, has been a mortgage adviser for Velocity Financial and worked in the investment team for NZ Post Superannuation Funds.

Stockman has an impressive portfolio of experience within the energy sector and holds a Masters in Applied Finance and a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons).

While working in Australia she also completed a Diploma in Financial Services and an Advanced Diploma of Financial Services.

Financial Advice NZ chief executive Katrina Shanks says the board were impressed with Stockman’s depth of insight into the financial services landscape in New Zealand and her perspectives of key stakeholders.

"She is a clear communicator with an inclusive style who they believe will bring fresh and innovative thinking to the board," she says in a statement.

“Rupert and Lana are great additions to our board, bringing with them a lot of knowledge that members will benefit from.

“I really look forward to working with them and I know with their help Financial Advice NZ will continue to go from strength to strength.

“I also cannot thank Sue Brown and John Bolton enough for their wonderful contributions," says Shanks.

“They were there when Financial Advice NZ was formed and their skill, experience, patience and support helped make the process easier as we found our feet and navigated those early days."

Members also voted in a new constitution for the organisation, which was widely consulted on in webinars and workshops.
