CA ANZ has bolstered its board of directors through the appointment of Peeyush Gupta. 

The firm said Mr Gupta’s experience as a non-executive director at NAB, SBS and the NSW Cancer Council would help bring significant expertise to the position. 

CA ANZ board chair John Palermo said Mr Gupta has substantial corporate governance experience, having served as a director on a range of corporate, not-for-profit, trustee and responsible entity boards. 

“Peeyush Gupta is an excellent addition to the CA ANZ board,” said Mr Palermo. 

“His governance experience from a range of different companies and boards, and his service to business which saw him awarded a member of the Order of Australia (AM), will be an asset as we focus on delivering for our members.” 

The firm said Mr Gupta’s expertise also comes from being a co-founder and inaugural CEO of IPAC Securities, a wealth management firm providing financial advice and institutional portfolio management in Australia and internationally, along with significant periods as chairman of Charter Hall Long Wale REIT and Charter Hall Direct Property Management Ltd. 

Mr Gupta said his focus in the role will be on supporting the organisation’s professional standards functions and a commitment to member services. 

“The profession has long been highly respected and maintaining trust is imperative,” said Mr Gupta. 

“At the same time, the profession needs to evolve and consider how best to proactively address issues such as cyber security, and to embrace contemporary opportunities in AI and new technologies.” 

“As well as upholding the profession’s commitment to ethical behaviour and conduct, we need to support our members through micro courses across areas that are key for their clients’ success.” 

CA ANZ said Mr Gupta holds a masters of business administration in finance from the Australian Graduate School of Management, University of NSW and is also an alumnus of Harvard and London Business Schools.
