Countplus subsidiary Total Financial Solutions Australia has named Andrew Kennedy as the company’s permanent chief executive.
Mr Kennedy has served as the business’ acting chief executive since January 2017, and Total Financial Solutions chair Mark Rantall said he had shown strong commitment to the business and the role in that time and was a good fit for the position.
“Combining his experience and knowledge of the financial services sector, Andrew’s leadership will help TFSA to continue evolving its professional, ethical support and guidance to TFSA licensed advisers,” Mr Rantall said.
Countplus chief executive Matthew Rowe said he was pleased with the appointment and that Mr Kennedy would continue to support the business.
“Andrew will lead the business towards capturing strong market momentum behind high quality licensees offering a natural home to professional and ethical financial advice in Australia,” he said.
“The Countplus network wishes Andrew and the TFSA Board well with its efforts.”
