Ken was instrumental in the formation and was foundation CEO of the Australasian Institute of Credit Union Directors in 1995. Since then Ken has developed and delivered training, education, professional development programs for credit union directors through to 2006 when he completed the merger with the then Australian Institute of Credit Union Management to form the Australasian Mutuals Institute. Since then the target market has expanded beyond credit unions to also cover building societies and mutual banks with Ken applying his skills equally across director, executive and emerging leader programs.

Ken has also been a director of Community First Credit Union for 30+ years including eight years in the role of Chairman and he currently serves in the role of Chair for both the Board Audit Committee and the Board Risk Committee. Through the role at Community First Ken has always maintained an active engagement in the broader banking and financial services industry, specifically in the areas where mutual ADIs actively compete.
