FSC’s CEO to Step Down


After more than seven years leading the FSC, its CEO Richard Klipin has announced his resignation. He will remain in the role while a replacement is appointed.

Rob Flannagan, Chair of the FSC says that under Klipin’s leadership the organisation has grown from having 29 members to 119, and is “…living its purpose as the clear voice of the financial services sector and growing the financial confidence and wellbeing of New Zealanders”.

“Richard has led this renewal in vision, strategy and purpose. His strength as a community builder is evidenced by the active involvement of over 540 members across the many FSC committees, forums, and working groups,” says Flanagan.

“Richard is leaving the FSC in great shape, with a new strategic plan and a Blueprint for Growth policy platform that unites the sector, and has support and backing from government and regulators.”

Klipin says: “It has been a huge decision. However, the time is right to hand on the leadership baton.

“It has been a privilege to serve as the FSC’s CEO. I thank everyone for the opportunity to serve, and lead, and work with such excellent people.”
