QIC makes female exec appointments

QIC has appointed Leonie Wilkinson as its new executive director, global clients and marketing, and Michelle Thomsen as general counsel, joining QIC’s executive committee.

Wilkinson is currently director and investment specialist, global real estate, at QIC and would commence her new role in July this year.

CEO Damien Frawley said Wilkinson’s 20 years’ experience in real estate, investment management and customer-facing roles would suit not only the demands of the role, but also the growing activity within real estate.

Wilkinson said she was keen to extend the insights she has developed in her previous roles at QIC, LaSalle Investment Management, Macquarie Capital and at the Australian Prudential and Regulation Authority to the full breadth of QIC’s clients and across the group in her new position.

Thomsen would join QIC’s executive committee in early August and would be based in the Brisbane office, reporting to Frawley.

She has held previous senior roles at Bank of Queensland, Suncorp, Babcock & Brown and SJ Berwin LLP.

Frawley said he looked forward to Thomsen’s contribution and fresh perspectives given her financial services expertise and international experience.

“I’m pleased to welcome Michelle to QIC at a time of significant opportunity for our organisation,” he said. “Our business is becoming increasingly complex as international expansion – particularly into the United Sates – becomes more substantial.”
