AMP CEO announces resignation

AMP chief executive Craig Meller will step down from the role at the end of 2018, with an international search underway for a replacement.


The company announced the resignation in a statement to the ASX today, explaining that the decision to announce it so early in the year reflects a commitment to transparency.

 “As part of our regular discussions on succession, Craig indicated he would like to retire at the end of this year," said AMP chair Catherine Brenner.

"As it’s important to have continuity of leadership to deliver on our longer-term growth ambitions, Craig and the Board jointly agreed the time is right to begin searching for his successor.

“Craig will continue to drive the company and deliver on our strategy through 2018 and has indicated his flexibility to work with the Board to ensure a smooth and orderly leadership transition.”

The British national started his career with AMP in the UK in 2001, before relocating to the Sydney headquarters to take up a number of senior roles including managing director of financial services.

Mr Meller succeeded Craig Dunn in the CEO role in January 2014.
