CPA Australia has announced Andrew Hunter as its new chief executive officer, beginning his role in April this year.
Hunter succeeds Alex Malley in the role who departed the organisation in controversy last year.
President and chairman of CPA Australia, Peter Wilson, said Hunter was chose by the Board from a shortlist of eight candidates to take the company forward.
“Andrew is a proven CEO with international experience who has demonstrated he can drive change, understand stakeholder needs, and bring out the best in organisations,” said Wilson.
Hunter held previous roles as managing director and CEO of the Export Finance and Insurance Corporation as well as senior roles in Macquarie Group, including head of Macquarie Capital Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The new CEO said he was excited to take on the role and talk with members to understand their perspective on CPA Australia’s future direction.
Hunter would replace Adam Awty who had been interim CEO since June last year.
