Today, VFMC is announcing James MacKenzie’s retirement from his role as Chair of the VFMC. James will retire on 23 August 2023, having chaired the VFMC Board since June 2015.
On behalf of the VFMC Executive team, and our people, I extend thanks and appreciation to James for his immense contribution to VFMC during his current tenure as Chair and in his previous role as a Non-Executive Director. James has been instrumental in the establishment and oversight of the centralised investment model for the State of Victoria implemented by VFMC. VFMC has been extremely fortunate to have benefited from James’ extensive commercial understanding and governance experience.
