Consulting firm Mercer has promoted from within to fill its financial services business leader role.
Andrew Godfrey will move into the Pacific-based role, effective immediately, succeeding Ben Walsh.
The vacancy was created by Mr Walsh's recent promotion into the role of Mercer managing director and market leader.
"Andrew is a proven leader and I’m thrilled to appoint him as my successor in Financial Services at Mercer. His appointment is testament to the tremendous talent we have at Mercer," Mr Walsh said.
"[Mr Godfrey] has held several senior and high-impact roles within the financial services business over many years and more recently has actively led our strategy development and execution, established our transformation program, and positively impacted the financial management of financial services," he said.
Mr Godfrey moves into the role from his position as operations excellence leader at Mercer.
He will continue to be based in Melbourne, and joins Mercer's Pacific market leadership team as part of the new role.
