The Financial Services Council (FSC) NZ is pleased to advise that Independent Chair Rob Flannagan has agreed to extend his term as FSC Chair whilst the Board undertakes the search for a new CEO. 

Rob Flannagan was appointed in 2015 and has helped guide, lead and shape the FSC for the past nine years, serving the financial services sector with distinction. 

In light of the recent resignation from outgoing CEO Richard Klipin, the FSC Board has made this decision to focus on the continuity of leadership as the organisation positions for future growth.

“The FSC has continued to grow significantly, and 2024 is shaping up to be a significant year for the financial services sector,” said FSC Deputy Chair Nigel Jackson. 

“We are grateful that Rob, who has been at the helm of guiding the FSC to it’s current success, has agreed to continue the journey.”

“I am honoured to continue to serve FSC and the sector,” said Mr. Flannagan. 

“The FSC Board and organisation are filled with passionate people, and I look forward to seeing the good work that comes with the strong strategic framework in place and robust collaboration.”

2024 promises to be a significant year for the sector, and the FSC is committed to continuing to collaborate with the Government, agencies and regulators to grow the financial confidence and wellbeing of all New Zealanders.
