Moelis Australia has welcomed a chief operating officer of investment banking and a Sydney Swans non-executive director to its board.
Alexandra Goodfellow, vice-chair of organisational consulting firm and Moelis & Company investment banking COO Kate Pilcher Ciafone have joined the Moelis Australia board.
Ms Pilcher Ciafone has replaced exiting Moelis non-executive director Joe Simon, who is leaving after four years on the board.
Meanwhile Ms Goodfellow has joined as an independent non-executive director and will chair the board’s remuneration and nomination committee.
Ms Goodfellow is also on the advisory board of the Westmead Children’s Hospital Grace Ward and is a non-executive director of the Sydney Swans.
Moelis Australia chair Jeffrey Browne said the new appointments will add “valuable skills, diversity and independence” to the board.
“Alexandra’s leadership and expertise in people, culture and governance will be significantly additive to this business in which people are our most valuable asset,” Mr Browne said.
“Kate brings global sector and operating experience to our board and we look forward to Kate’s contribution in continuing to strengthen and optimise our global corporate advisory strategic alliance with Moelis & Company.”
Prior to joining Moelis & Company as a founding member in 2007, Ms Pilcher Ciafone began her career with UBS Investment Bank.
