Michelle Russo, former head of wealth customer resolution at ANZ, has joined DASH as a chief operating officer, along with nine other hires at the fintech firm.

She would be responsible for the investment operations and client services teams at DASH and bringing key projects to market.

She said: “I’m excited to be joining an innovative and highly client-focused group, and a dynamic leadership team. I see real opportunity in DASH’s strategy to provide sophisticated and more efficient solutions for advisers and their clients”.

Prior to ANZ, Russo had spent over three years at StatePlus and would bring this extensive experience in superannuation to DASH’s superannuation offering, Super Simplifier.

Together with Mark Blair, who recently joined the team as a superannuation specialist, she would manage product enhancements to ensure the super product remains competitive and a suitable solution for advisers looking to implement a low-fee product for their clients.

Meanwhile, Blair had been the executive general manager, superannuation trustee office at Equity Trustees for over seven years and had prior experience in similar roles at KPMG and RiceWarner.

DASH also announced hires across its operations, platform, product development, and client success teams.

With these appointments, CEO Andrew Whelan believed the firm was “on track to deliver some innovative and exciting solutions for advisers”.

“These new hires are in line with our growth strategy and with our mission to provide better advice tools and investment execution to the market,” he said.

“Having a smooth tech stack where all elements integrate seamlessly and from A-Z is what will be the game-changer for better staff satisfaction, less administration burdens, and happier clients.”
