In his new role, Mr Levinge will oversee the marketing of a number of the company’s investment strategies, reporting to Grant Samuel Funds Management (GSFM) director and head of distribution Damien McIntyre.
Mr Levinge has previously held positions with Franklin Templeton Investments, MMC Asset Management, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Westpac, Clayton Utz and AMP.
The company has also promoted Stephen Fletcher to the role of head of retail distribution.
