"Stu's appointment is part of the continuing maturing of the governance approach in the organisation"

Mark Darrow, MTF Finance Board Chair

Mr Myles brings to the Board a strong governance mindset which has been critical in creating and driving the company's strategic plan. With a focus on governance and the associated workload, Mr Darrow says he has been impressed with the commitment of the Board to governing the strategy implementation.

"MTF Finance is in a significant growth phase as we launch new products, re-energise existing channels, and launch new partnerships," says Mr Myles. "It is an exciting time to play a leading governance role, and I look forward to working even more closely with Mark, the rest of the Board and management."

Mr Myles has been on the MTF Finance Board as a shareholder representative since 2020 as owner-operator of MTF Finance Carlton Corner in Christchurch. Currently, he is Board Chair of Nova Trust and a Chartered Member of the Institute of Directors (CMInstD) – positions which speak to experiences gained over his 30-year history in the New Zealand financial industry.
