The Australian Corporate Treasury Association (ACTA) is thrilled to announce the appointment of Dr. Kurt Smith to the crucial newly created role of Technical Director.

 

Kurt has a long and successful career across both sides of the Treasury community, firstly via Fund Management and senior Bank trading positions, before moving into Corporate Finance and Treasury. This coupled with Kurts strong Startup and Academic background make him the ideal person to help us to take ACTA’s CPD, Education and Advocacy forward.
