The new deputy CEO is a financial services veteran, and joins the body from one of Australia’s Big Four banks.
Blake Briggs will serve as the new deputy chief executive officer of the Financial Services Council.
“Blake joins at a challenging time for the financial services sector, which is at the forefront of delivering much needed services to Australians as we all work together to help mitigate the economic consequences of the COVID-19 crisis,” said FSC chairman Geoff Lloyd.
Mr Briggs has spent the last two years as head of government affairs for wealth at Westpac. Prior to that, he was the FSC’s senior policy manager for superannuation, and has also worked for the Department of Workplace Relations NSW.
“I am delighted to welcome Blake back to the FSC in this senior role,” said FSC CEO Sally Loane.
“His depth of experience in financial services policy and government relations will strengthen the FSC’s excellent policy team both now during the current period and into the future.”
Mr Briggs starts with the FSC in May.
