The Financial Services Council (FSC) has appointed Sean West, Macquarie Banking and Financial Services Group executive director – head of wealth management, and Justin Delaney, Zurich Australia chief executive – life and investments, as directors to the FSC board.
West had worked across financial advice, investment management, life insurance, private banking, superannuation and wealth platforms, and had over 20 years’ experience in the industry.
He joined Macquarie Group in 2011 and held several senior executive roles before becoming head of wealth management in April 2019.
Delaney had over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry, and prior to joining Zurich in December 2019, he was the chief operating officer for TAL Australia and spent 12 years working with wealth product and platforms at Macquarie Group.
