Award-winning independent financial adviser Claire Mackay will join the board, replacing the retiring Stuart Black AM.


A business owner and principal at Quantum Financial, Ms Mackay is also a qualified chartered accountant, certified financial planner, self-managed super fund expert and a qualified lawyer.

Ms Mackay’s appointment brings equal numbers of men and women to the board for the first time.

APESB chair The Honorable Nicola Roxon said the board welcomes Ms Mackay’s range and depth of expertise, which includes roles at Macquarie Bank and PwC.

"Claire brings with her a broad variety of skills and experience from the financial sector, as well as great energy and commitment," Ms Roxon said.

Ms Mackay will replace Mr Black, who is retiring at the end of June.

Mr Black was a founding board member in 2006 and has played a pivotal role in the APESB’s establishment and development as a National Standards Setter.

"Stuart has made a truly significant contribution to the APESB, including bringing his particular expertise in small-to-medium practices, acting as chair of APESB during the first 18 months of the board and serving six years as a member of the International Federation of Accountants SMP Committee," Ms Roxon said.

"On behalf of the board and staff, I would like to thank Stuart for his decade of dedicated and professional service and extend our best wishes for the future."
