AMP has created a new managing director role which will bring all retail and institutional client teams in Australia under one position.
AMP Capital created the role to further strengthen resourcing in Australia and has appointed Marsha Beck to take on the new position.
AMP Capital director Asia Pacific Craig Keary said that the creation of the role follows a dynamic year for the industry and AMP Capital’s Australian business.
“I am delighted Marsha will be leading the Australian client teams. While we reset and refocus our efforts domestically, it’s important that we have the right leadership in Australia to navigate this period, ensure that we put clients at the centre of our business and set us up for future success,” he said.
Mr Keary said that Ms Beck brought with her strong customer and client engagement qualities and would be key in establishing relationships.
“Having direct responsibility of Australia will deliver increased focus on establishing strong relationships with our key clients and partners while driving greater collaboration and integration across our Australian distribution and investment businesses,” he said.
Ms Beck has previously worked at Challenger Group and Perennial Investment Partners, but most recently led AMP Capital’s global consultant and account management strategy for the Asia Pacific client division.
Ms Beck will report directly to Mr Keary and her appointment is effective immediately.
