    Queen’s Counsel Peter Jooste has been appointed the new chairman of the Finance Brokers Supervisory Board.

    Fair Trading Minister Doug Shave said Mr Jooste had more than 30 years’ legal experience in South Africa, the United Kingdom and Australia and currently practised as a barrister, specialising in commercial and corporate law.

    “The Government has moved quickly to appoint a new chairman who will be responsible for improving the practices and procedures of the board as recommended by the Gunning Inquiry,” Mr Shave said.

    “Mr Jooste has accepted a term as chairman until April 2002 and will take up the position as soon as possible. His wide experience and qualifications make him well equipped for this task.”

    A former partner with Parker and Parker, Mr Jooste is also chairman of the International Business Council of WA and a member of the Corporations and Securities Panel appointed under the Corporations Law.
