On the final hearing day, evidence continued from Afford’s recently-appointed CEO and the Chair of its Board. The Royal Commission (RC) continued to express its concerns about the organisation’s prioritisation of growth and profit, and interrogated if this had changed since the resignation of the previous CEO last year.

The Board Chair agreed that the focus was overly focused on financial matters, and that tone was inappropriate at times and self-congratulatory.
