Courtenay Smith has been appointed Chief Financial Officer of ASX 100 company Mirvac, replacing Shane Gannon in the role. She will join CEO Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz at the helm of the property group, which also has a gender-balanced board.
Smith has 21 years of experience at property group Lendlease, where she has held various roles including most recently as CFO of Property Australia. She has worked in senior finance roles with Lendlease’s property development, construction and investment sectors in Australia, Asia, the UK and the US.
“After an extensive internal and external search, we are delighted that Courtenay will be joining Mirvac as CFO,” Mirvac CEO Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz said.
“Courtenay is an experienced finance executive with a strong background in the property sector and is well regarded for her skills across the areas of strategy, finance, operations and transformation. We are looking forward to welcoming Courtenay to our executive leadership team.”
Smith is a chartered accountant and has a Bachelor of Accounting and Finance from University
of Technology Sydney.
Along with having two women in its top executive positions, Mirvac’s board is gender-balanced. Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, Christine Bartlett, Jane Hewitt and Sam Mostyn make up half of the board’s non-executive positions – a significant milestone for an ASX 100 listed company in the property and construction sector.
Corporate leader Sam Mostyn was recently appointed president of powerful lobby group, Chief Executive Women.
