AMP appoints new group general counsel

AMP has promoted group company secretary and general counsel for governance David Cullen to replace Brian Salter as group general counsel, following Mr Salter's resignation in April.


AMP announced in a statement on Thursday that its group company secretary and general counsel for governance David Cullen had been promoted to the role vacated by Mr Salter.

Mr Cullen's ascension to the role has come following revelations of misconduct and the provision of false and misleading statements to ASIC at the financial services and banking royal commission.

The revelations prompted the resignation of chief executive Craig Meller and later Mr Salter along with AMP chair Catherine Brenner in April.

In early May, research house Morningstar released a scathing report that declared the royal commission had "trashed" AMP's brand.

Mr Cullen has been with the AMP group since 2004 when he joined AMP Capital as a senior legal counsel, later stepping into the role of executive legal counsel for the group in 2010.

Before his time at AMP, he was a senior legal associate at law firms Gilbert + Tobin and Blake Dawson Waldron (now Ashurst). Prior to that, he was an executive officer at the ASX from 1995 to 1997.
