Tasmanian-based financial services company MyState Limited has boosted its board's digital expertise.
MyState said former ING DIRECT chief executive Vaughn Richtor had been appointed as a non-executive director, effective from September 1.
MyState chairman Miles Hampton said Mr Richtor "led the successful establishment of arguably Australia's pre-eminent digital bank" at ING DIRECT.
Mr Hampton said Mr Richtor was later appointed managing director of ING Vysya Bank in India and led a successful turnaround.
"Vaughn was named executive of the year at the 2016 Australian Retail Banking Awards and will bring considerable banking and digital expertise to the MyState board, having worked extensively within the industry in Australia and overseas, and we look forward to his contribution," Mr Hampton said.
Mr Richtor is currently chairman of Ratesetter Australia and a director of TMB Bank in Thailand.
