Former Westpac Private Bank area manager appointed as executive director of Financial Services Federation to replace Kirk Hope

The Financial Services Federation, which represents building societies and finance companies, has appointed Lyn McMorran as its executive director.

McMorran previously worked as the Area Manager Central for Westpac's Private Bank and replaces Kirk Hope, who has moved to the New Zealand Bankers Association.

McMorran was the immediate past President of the Institute of Financial Advisers of NZ.

“I am very excited about the opportunity this role offers in continuing the good work of the Federation in providing the NZ economy with strong well-run finance companies," McMorran said.

"The Federation’s development of Responsible Lending Guidelines for its members to adhere to particularly fits with my philosophy of informed consumers and a responsible financial services sector.”
