Bruce Hawkins has been appointed by Managed Accounts Holdings (MGP) as chief financial officer (CFO).
His previous experience included change management and consulting and leadership roles with prominent wealth organisations including MLC/National Australia Bank, Aviva Australia and ESS Super.
His appointment comes as shareholders are due to vote upon a change of company name to Explore Wealth Limited on 12 April 2019.
Hawkins said he looked forward to playing his part in the 2019 growth strategy, which included the launch of the new Wrap platform expected for Q2 2019.
“The chance to join the company during this period of brand, platform and operational renewal, and guided by a board focused on growth opportunities is somewhat rare,” Hawkins said.
Chair, Peter Brook, said he was delighted to welcome Bruce Hawkins in the critical role and to also benefit from his sector expertise.
“The experience Bruce brings is difficult to replicate, particularly his hands-on knowledge with business transformation and customer experience within platform administration and superannuation,” Brook said.
“Combined with his financial and strategic acumen as CFO, we feel encouraged that Bruce will play a part in the future growth plans of the Company.”
