Centrepoint Alliance’s managing director and chief executive, John de Zwart has resigned and will leave the company in November 2017 after four and a half years with the firm.
In an announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) today, Centrepoint said de Zwart had left the Centrepoint Group with a strong brand and trusted reputation and a growing business.
Centrepoint chair, Alan Fisher said: “Together with the support of a strong management team, John has led the way in championing a more professional, technologically enabled, and ultimately, a more client-centric way of delivering advice”.
Fisher said de Zwart had decided to take an extended break to spend time with his family and friends, and explore other opportunities in the future.
“Centrepoint and the broader industry have accomplished a lot over the last four years since FOFA [Future of Financial Advice] was introduced, and the industry now has the foundations on which to build a strong future,” de Zwart said.
The board has engaged an executive recruitment firm to search for his replacement.
