AMP has selected a financial services veteran as a new non-executive director for its board, effective from 15 February.
Andrea Slattery will be taking the reins, bringing 14 years’ experience of acting as a managing director in financial services as well as having served on board and advisory committees for listed companies for the past 11 years.
She is currently a non-executive director at Clean Energy Finance Corporation, Argo Global Listed Infrastructure and the South Australia Cricket Association.
The appointment comes after AMP was named as one of four companies listed on the ASX200 that had no women on its board, with the top 200 group falling just short of its goal to have 30 per cent female representation on boards by the end of 2018, at 29.7 per cent.
AMP Chairman David Murray said Ms Slattery’s insights into financial advice, wealth management and superannuation will be valuable to the company’s efforts to simplify and reset the business.
“Andrea’s considerable experience in financial services as a business leader, non-executive director and an expert in change brings a strong mix of skills to the AMP board,” Mr Murray said.
“Andrea has built trusted relations with government, industry and consumers, and been a strong advocate for the self-managed superannuation industry, and financial services in general.”
Ms Slattery has worked in financial services, superannuation and retirement for 26 years.
She established and led the SMSF Association, a peak body representing Australia’s SMSF sector.
