Hong Kong insolvency manager Credit Intelligence (CI1) has once again changed up its corporate personnel.

Director and Chairman Anthony Ho is stepping down after just under two years at the company. He is replaced by Credit Intelligence founder, CEO and Managing Director Jimmie Wong.

From today, Jimmie will step into the revised role of Executive Chairman. It is unclear if he will simultaneously continue with his other duties.

Additionally, two new non-executive directors are joining the CI1 team.

Brett Crowley is a solicitor who's rubbed shoulders at Ernst & Young as a partner in Hong Kong and Australia. He's also a Chairman at ASX-listed consumer goods manufacturer Jatenergy. Brett has served other listed companies as a company secretary over the years, and is also a Senior Legal Member of New South Wales' Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Michael Pixley has served for over 35 years as a merchant banker across Australia and Asia. He's also a non-exec director at the ASX-listed Eve Investments and Resfreshgroup. On top of that, Michael is a founding director of Story-I, a listed Apple technology reseller.

He's also a West Aussie who's earned a degree in business management from Curtin University.

Just another board reshuffle

It's not the first time this year the company has changed up its board. In February, CI1 brought Sydney banker Mark Paton aboard to help grow the company's Australian and New Zealand offering. On the same day Mark was appointed to the board, director Mel Ashton resigned from the company.

However, after just over two months as a Credit Intelligence director, Mark has also stepped down today.

It's unclear what's caused the mass board kerfuffle — especially as Credit Intelligence predicted a 420 per cent increase in its FY20 profit compared to last financial year.

While Credit Intelligence has provided lots of information about its new hires, it's left much unsaid about the people leaving the executive team. The lack of explanation as to why significant personnel are back out the revolving door may leave shareholders scratching their heads.

Nevertheless, Credit Intelligence shares actually closed green on Tuesday — up an even five per cent to trade for 3.2 cents per share.
