Consumer lobby group for the over 50s, National Seniors Australia, has today announced Chris Guille as its new Chairman.
Mr Guille has been a Board Director of National Seniors since June 2012 and brings over 30 years of experience in banking, trustee services and investment advice to the role.
He is an experienced company director and currently works as an adviser to a number of charitable groups, including Aboriginal trusts.
Building on National Seniors’ reputation as an independent voice for older Australians, Mr Guille said that creating an even higher profile of advocacy for the over 50’s was very much on the list of priorities.
“We also want to develop new products and services for members – especially through more meaningful engagement and collaboration with like-minded organisations.
“I look forward to working with the Board and management to support National Seniors in its next stage of growth and development,” he said.
Mr Guille’s appointment comes as David Carvosso steps down as Chairman, a position he has held since 2011 and as a Director, since February 2007.
“David implemented significant changes during his time and stewardship of National Seniors," Mr Guille said.
“He put the needs of members and the organisation’s sustainability at the forefront of all decision-making and so paved the way for significant future progress.
“He is well respected across government, business and the not-for-profit sector and is known for his dedication to advancing the interests of all over 50s.
“David leaves as Chairman with our heartfelt thanks and good wishes,” Mr Guille said.
