Share-trading platform Superhero has today welcomed Dianne (Di) Challenor as a non-executive director on its Board, joining its Chair, Philip Crutchfield and Superhero co-founders, John Winters and Wayne Baskin.

Ms Challenor has more than two decades’ worth of experience in leadership roles in major financial institutions, including her current role as Managing Director, Head of Global Transaction Services, at Westpac Institutional Banking.

“We are so pleased to have someone of Di’s calibre join our Board as Superhero continues to grow and gain popularity among a wide range of users of our platform,” Superhero Chair Philip Crutchfield said.

“Di brings with her a broad range of banking experience at JP Morgan and Citi, as well as roles on boards for startups like 10x Future Technologies and Zip Co.”

“Having already worked alongside one another on the Zip Co Board, I have no doubt that Di has the right mix of skills and experience to help us build on our early successes,” said Mr Crutchfield.

Ms Challenor said, “I am incredibly excited about joining the team, it gives me an opportunity to leverage my banking and previous board experience to help Superhero grow, and provide the best solutions for a broad range of consumers in Australia and globally.”

From 2013, Ms Challenor held the Hong Kong-based role of Managing Director & Head of Transaction Services Asia Pacific for JP Morgan, before returning to Australia to join Westpac Group in 2017.

Previously, Ms Challenor was chief operating officer of Citi’s transaction bank and held several other senior roles in the Asia Pacific region during her 13 years with the institution.
