Mr Chetham was previously an AMP practice development manager for Queensland from 2012 to 2014 and a consultant since July 2015, according to his LinkedIn profile.
In his new role, he will consolidate the Evermore brand and oversee its expansion across the state.
Evermore managing director Amirthan Arasaratnam said the move comes in response to adviser demand.
“We initially established a small footprint in the Sunshine State which triggered a very strong level of inquiry from other advice practices. We believe this is due to our core focus being helping advisers to grow their business first, being institutionally non-aligned with an open APL and our proprietary digital technology solutions,” Mr Arasaratnam said.
“Advisers are resonating with our unique AFSL model as it deals with the real issues facing the industry right now. This has resulted in numerous inquiries from practices wanting to join us. Our own growth as an AFSL follows on from that.”
In addition to Queensland, the firm is also looking to grow in NSW, Mr Arasaratnam said.
“We are, of course, open to discussion regarding all other states, but for us, it is not about growth for growth’s sake. It is all about the right people with the right attitude,” he said.
