Research house CoreData has announced the appointment of an APAC chief executive.

The business has appointed Dean Thomas who has held previous roles including head of growth markets for MetLife Australia, chief advice officer at FinChoice and managing director at Hillross Financial Services. 

He is also a former board member of the Association of Superannuation Funds Australia (ASFA) and has sat on the Treasury’s governance working group as part of his work with the Financial Services Council (FSC). 

Andrew Inwood, founder and global CEO of CoreData, said: “We are very fortunate to have Dean join CoreData to continue the growth of the Australian business. His experience in receiving and consuming data will assist us in producing research that is actionable and adds value to a business.”

Thomas added: “I am delighted to be joining CoreData as I have used their research over many years to help me make informed decisions on the strategy for the organisations from which I have worked. To be given the opportunity to lead the APAC team and continue to assist the industry with actionable insights is what drives me.”

CoreData was founded by Inwood in 2002 as a global market research consultancy helping financial services companies support growth and transformational change.

Earlier this month, CoreData announced a three-year partnership with technology platform Praemium to enhance Praemium’s existing offering and collaborate on educational resources, webinars and workshops designed to empower Praemium clients.

Denis Orrock, chief strategy officer at Praemium, said: “We are excited to join forces with CoreData, a recognised research and consultancy leader in financial services. This strategic partnership is a testament to our commitment to support the advice industry. By combining our strengths, we are confident that we will deliver unparalleled value to our clients and the broader industry.”
