Foresters Financial announces chief risk officer

The appointment was confirmed this week.

Foresters Financial has announced the appointment of Greg Hanigan as chief risk officer.

Mr Hanigan joins the member-owned financial services specialist with over 20 years’ experience and most recently worked at IOOF (now Insignia) in risk and compliance, and NAB as a senior risk partner.

He has worked as a financial planner with Tasmania Perpetual Trustees and spent 12 years at Tasplan Super, where he was appointed chief risk officer in 2019.


Mr Hanigan has also been a non-executive director of the Governance Institute of Australia since June 2021.

“Greg is a proven performer with a solid track record. His experience spans leading the governance, risk and compliance functions, as well as overseeing an in-house administration and call centre operation, a financial advice business, and a commercial lending business,” Foresters CEO Emma Sakellaris said.

“The chief risk officer position is a pivotal one that plays a critical role in guiding and influencing business decisions. Greg’s experience in senior risk roles with some of Australia’s leading organisations means he is well placed to take on this responsibility.

“In particular, his experience at Tasplan Super in providing leadership through periods of significant change and complexity through three fund mergers to enable the evolution of a highly engaged and productive team is an impressive achievement.”
