IOOF has hired a new chief executive for an advice firm it acquired from ANZ following the takeover of its aligned wealth management businesses.
Geoff Kellett steps in as the chief executive of Financial Services Partners, one of four licensed businesses acquired by IOOF following the acquisition of ANZ’s aligned dealer groups, a deal that was completed on 1 October.
Mr Kellett has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services and has spent the last eight years of his career at IOOF.
“We are pleased to bring the talent, experience and client-first focus of Financial Services Partners into the IOOF group,” IOOF group general manager of wealth management Renato Mota said.
“We’re creating Australia’s leading financial advisory service and Geoff has the strategic insight and passion for building relationships with advisers that makes him the ideal person to lead this business for the ultimate benefit of our customers.”
