Designed to supercharge Findex’s people strategy, this newly created role will sit in the executive management team and be responsible for driving the group’s employee engagement, retention and acquisition strategies.

Findex employs over 3,000 staff in regional and metropolitan Australia and New Zealand, delivering accountancy and advisory services to a client base of more than 250,000 individuals, over 80,000 businesses and over $17 billion funds under advice. 


Speaking about her appointment, Ms Betts said: “I am delighted to be joining Findex as chief people officer and am excited by the focus a newly created role brings to the group. Findex is at an exciting point in its talent evolution and I’m looking forward to building on Findex’s existing strengths, as well as looking at our talent development strategies as the team grows in 2020.”

Spiro Paule, Findex CEO, said elevating the chief people officer role to an executive level is a demonstration of the group’s commitment to nurturing, developing and growing its people.

“We believe that our ability to retain and attract industry leading talent is what enables us to deliver best in class solutions to our clients and the broader market place. We’ve experienced growth in a number of key areas for us in 2019 and look forward to what 2020 and beyond hold for our people,” he said. 

Ms Betts brings to the group over two decades of experience in senior HR leadership positions across major financial services organisations. She most recently joins from AGL, where she was GM for people partnering, strategy and transformation, supporting the transition and benefits realisation following its major investment into the business model last year. Prior to this, Ms Betts was group executive for human resources at Australian Unity, which experienced a 200 per cent growth in headcount during her three years in post.
