Managed Accounts has appointed Bruce Hawkins as its new chief financial officer, bringing his 25 years’ experience to the firm.
Mr Hawkins brings with him 25 years’ experience to the role which has included roles at MLC, Aviva Australia and ESS Super.
Mr Hawkins said he was excited to join the company during a time of renewal and growth.
“The chance to join the company during this period of brand, platform and operational renewal and guided by a board focused on growth opportunities is somewhat rare. I, of course, accepted with both hands.
“I am looking forward to playing my part in the 2019 growth strategy including the launch of the new Wrap platform expected in Q2 2019,” he said.
Mr Hawkins’ appointment comes as the shareholders of managed accounts are due to vote upon changing the name of the company to Xplore Wealth Limited.
Chairman Peter Brook said that Managed Accounts would benefit from his expertise and believe that his appointment would bring a breadth of leadership during this pivotal time.
“The experience Bruce brings is difficult to replicate, particularly his hands-on knowledge with business transformation and customer experience within platform administration and superannuation.
“Combined with his financial and strategic acumen as CFO, we feel encouraged that Bruce will play a part in the future growth plans of the company,” Mr Brook said.
