Australia-based marketplace lender SocietyOne recently announced it has appointed G&C Mutual Bank CEO, Dave Taylor, as a new non-executive director. According to SocietyOne, Taylor has more than 25 years of experience in financial services. His board experience notably has included directorships of mutual institutions, industry superannuation funds and ASX-listed companies. He is currently a director of TransAction Solutions Ltd, CUFSS Ltd, Shared Service Partners Ltd and the Australian Mutual Capital Group and was previously a Government-appointed member of the Australian Payment Systems Council.
“It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Dave to the board of SocietyOne. His extensive experience in financial services and deep connections with the customer-owned banking community will be of great benefit to our board and company. Mutual institutions such as G&C, Beyond Bank Australia, Unity Bank and Regional Australia Bank have played a key role in the growth and success of SocietyOne. We look forward to furthering this important partnership with Dave’s support and advice.”
“SocietyOne has made a major impact in the area of personal loans since it started operating in 2012 and particularly in the last couple of years as mutual institutions like G&C have seen the benefits of partnering with the company. Joining the board is a natural extension of this partnership and I’m keen to play my part in helping to steer the company’s future growth.”
