MetLife Australia has hired a former director in the superannuation advisory team at KPMG as its new chief of staff and external affairs.
Wendy Tse will be joining MetLife in April from KPMG, where she has been a director in the superannuation advisory team for the last two years, according to a statement.
Prior to KPMG, she was the general manager of consulting at SuperRatings, providing funds with deep insights into the superannuation landscape across Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
Her new role includes responsibility for advising clients on regulatory and government affairs, supporting the business in translating the life insurer’s strategy for business partners, and representing the office of the chief executive across the industry.
“We anticipate the regulatory environment will continue to evolve this year and it will be challenging for our clients and customers. We need to work in partnership with them to navigate this changing landscape,” said MetLife Australia chief executive Richard Nunn.
“Wendy will help us do this, as well as play an important role in evolving our life insurance business and the industry. We intend to be a strategic partner for our clients, adding value at a tactical level, and helping [them serve] their members to build a more confident future.”
