Wingate is pleased to welcome Jennifer Darbyshire, a senior executive with extensive experience in governance, law, conduct risk and regulatory risk across a range of sectors and in a variety of roles and organisations, both locally and internationally, as chair of the Wingate Risk and Compliance Committee.

She is currently on the boards of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival and the Melbourne Theatre Company Foundation. Previous directorships include the Australian Financial Complaints Authority, the Financial Ombudsman Service Limited, Heide Museum of Modern Art (Chair) and St Vincent’s & Mercy Private Hospital.

Jennifer previously worked at the National Australia Bank, where her roles included EGM Conduct & Regulatory Risk, General Counsel Governance and General Counsel of NAB’s subsidiary Clydesdale & Yorkshire Bank in the UK.

On her appointment, Ms Darbyshire commented: ”I am pleased to head the Wingate Risk and Compliance committee in what is Wingate’s 20th year. As a leading investment manager in the private credit sector, I look forward to working with Farrel and the team to support their exciting growth plans.”
