Real estate investment manager Qualitas has appointed a new independent director with a lifetime of financial services experience.
Brian Delaney will join the advisory board of Qualitas as it looks to fill a vacancy created by the retirement of Carol Schwartz, who is leaving the company after 12 years. Mr Delaney is also a director of Lonsec and Trawalla Group.
“Brian is a valuable addition to the Qualitas Advisory Board, bringing over 30 years’ experience and a deep understanding of domestic and offshore markets. Brian brings a wealth of strategic expertise and networks to support the next phase of growth at Qualitas,” said advisory board chair Michael Schoenfeld.
Mr Delaney is a graduate from the Harvard Business School executive education program, a life member of the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA), and a fellow of ASFA and the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
He has also held roles as QIC and AMP Capital, including as director of the client, product and marketing division where he held responsibility for all institutional, retail and self-managed super fund strategies while serving as a member of the executive team.
“Qualitas welcomes the experience Brian Delaney will bring to the Qualitas Board from roles held at QIC as executive director of strategy, clients and global markets, and as US senior managing director, leading QIC’s efforts to foster client relationships and business development opportunities in the US,” Qualitas said.
