NZCU South announce new Chief Executive


Tania Dickie has been appointed as the new Chief Executive for NZCU South.

“After a thorough executive search locally and internationally we are confident that Tania has the experience, leadership capabilities and skills to build on the existing strengths of the credit union,” said NZCU South Chair, Bevan Killick.

“A number of international candidates from top banking, credit union and various business backgrounds with world class experience in strategy, business development, banking and finance were evaluated. Tania emerged head and shoulders above an exceptional group of candidates. She has the full support of the Board to lead the organisation into the future,” said Mr Killick.

Based in the Dunedin head office, Tania joined NZCU South as Chief Operating Officer in 2012. In this position she was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business. She has been acting Chief Executive for six months.

“I look forward to stepping up permanently to the role of Chief Executive and building on the credit unions achievements in recent years.” said Ms Dickie.

“My first task, in conjunction with the Board, will be to assess the market opportunities for NZCU South and then develop and deliver on a strategy and plan to achieve this.

As the third largest credit union in New Zealand we must continue to grow and develop all aspects of our services, products, how we deliver them and the technology choices available for our customers and members.

We’re also the largest credit union in the South Island and are committed to improving the financial literacy of South Islanders and being part of local communities,” added Ms Dickie.

Prior to her role at NZCU South, Ms Dickie worked in senior roles within the financial services industry for AGC Finance, Westpac, FAI Finance and Baycorp NZ. Christchurch born and raised, she holds a Bachelor of Business in Marketing Management from the Manukau Institute of Technology in Auckland.
