Taking on the role of new executive director of pedagogy and advocacy, Ms Pfitz, will oversee learning, coaching, and member program development.
The role will support women in commercial finance to access critical resources to upskill themselves and broaden their expertise.
Bringing almost 30 years of experience in the sector, Ms Pfitz also runs her own commercial finance and advisory business as the director of Pfitz Financial.
Despite the challenges for women across the finance sector, Ms Pfitz said a recent survey showed women want to support other women entering the industry.
“[This makes] our community a resource hub for all women considering commercial finance broking or working within it,” Ms Pfitz said.
