AMP has appointed Kathryn McKenzie as an independent, non-executive director to the AMP Limited board, effective from 18 November, 2020.
McKenzie had over 25 years of experience in board and senior executive leadership roles and was currently a non-executive director for NBN Co and Stockland.
She had previously served on the boards of Allianz Australia, Foxtel, Telstra Ventures, Sydney Water, and Workcover.
McKenzie was the chief executive officer for New Zealand telecommunications group Chorus from February 2017 to December 2019.
Before that, she held several executive roles at Telstra, including as chief operating officer, and senior roles with the NSW Government in the Department of Commerce and Department of Industrial Relations.
McKenzie was a qualified solicitor and a member of Chief Executive Women (CEW) Australia.
Debra Hazelton, AMP chair, said McKenzie would bring strong expertise and insight to the AMP Board due to her wide range of board and business leadership roles.
“She has a track record of leading change within the organisations she has worked, including cultural change, as well as managing diverse stakeholders across government, communities, investors and employees,” Hazelton said.
“Through her career as both an executive and non-executive director, she has earned a reputation for integrity, great judgement and building collaborative and effective teams. We look forward to her valued contributions on the Board as we transform AMP.”
