Meet the Director Nominees for 2021

Peter Buckley

I am proud to nominate as director for The Mac Credit Union and continue my association since becoming a director in 2018. We are a strong organisation, with wonderful staff and members who appreciate our personal touch banking. As Deputy Chair of the board and Chair of the Risk Committee I feel a personal stewardship to our history and sense of purpose in guiding our future.

I am currently General Manager of NEPEAN Engineering & Innovation, one of Australia’s largest privately owned engineering service providers and local to our area in Narellan. I actually completed my apprenticeship at NEPEAN, and similar to The Mac, it is an honour to lead this organisation and live in the local community where The Mac operates along with my family.

To date I have held executive and general management roles in ASX, private and membership owned organisations across the engineering, health, aged care, education & community sectors. Additional to The Mac, I have served as Non-Executive Director and Company Member of Warrigal Aged Care and currently serve on the board of The Illawarra Connection.

If elected, I plan to serve The Mac for the full term – Thank you

I was fortunate to be able to re-join The Mac Board in 2021 bringing a passionate and collaborative work ethic and dedication to the best interests of the members of The Mac.

I have a keen understanding of the challenges and opportunities that face a mutual in today’s operating environment and I stand ready to lead The Mac through these challenges for the benefit of our members and our people. The Mac is special to me as I am sure it is to all our members and staff.
