Equity Trustees has realigned two of its key leaders with the target markets of Australia and Europe as it moves to grow its corporate trustee and responsible entity business.
Russell Beasley has been promoted to executive general manager of corporate trustee services for Australia. Mr Beasley joined Equity Trustees in 2005 and took over leadership of the Australian fund services business in May 2019.
“Russell has more than four decades of experience in the Australian market, strong client relationships and significant expertise across the complex range of operational responsibilities required for an outstanding responsible entity business,” said managing director Mick O'Brien.
Harvey Kalman will also step into the role of managing director for UK and Europe and global head of business development for fund services. Mr Kalman established the corporate trustee services business in Australia 20 years ago and led its expansion overseas.
“With Harvey’s commitment to attracting leading fund managers to Equity Trustees, we aim to make the most of the significant opportunity to grow our European business,” Mr O'Brien said.
“We are confident this alignment of energy and expertise will ensure we make the most of the many opportunities available to us here and overseas.”
