Chief Executive of Collections Trade Body elected to Money Advice Group Board

Peter Wallwork, Chief Executive of the Credit Services Association (CSA), has been appointed to the Board of the Money Advice Liaison Group (MALG).

His appointment was confirmed at the MALG AGM in July. Also confirmed was the re-appointment of CSA Non-Executive Board Director Yvonne MacDermid, Chief Executive of Money Advice Scotland.

Peter says he is proud to be joining the Board and also paid tribute to Leigh Berkley of Arrow Global and former Chair of the CSA, who is stepping down from MALG board after three years of service:

“I am delighted to have been elected to the MALG Board and look forward to working closely with my fellow Board members to continue the organisation’s excellent work in improving the lives of people in problem debt.

“I would also like to extend my personal thanks to Leigh for all the great work he has done in representing the CSA and the views of the debt collection and debt purchase sectors over the past three years. I will continue to ensure the voice of our members and our industry is heard to enable the best-informed decisions to be made.”

Bob Winnington, Chief Executive of the Money Advice Liaison Group, said: “At MALG, we facilitate conversations and collaboration between debt advisers and the credit and collections sector to enable them to improve the lives of people in debt. It is vital that we engage with the debt collection sector and the Credit Services Association has been actively involved for several years now. We are particularly pleased to have Peter Wallwork on our Board representing the industry and helping to steer the future development of MALG.”
