Financial advisory firm Findex has announced the appointment of HR executive, Kath Nell, to the position of chief people officer.   

Ms Nell who is based in Sydney and has over 20 years in the Human Resources industry across markets including Australia and the United States, will provide strategic leadership of Findex’s Human Resources function which encompasses culture transformation, people solutions, diversity and inclusion, employee progression and retention, Findex announced in a statement this week. 

Commenting on the appointment, Findex chief executive officer, Spiro Paule, said, “We are committed to investing in our team and attracting the right talent to provide the highest level of service to our clients. Kath is a deeply experienced senior executive, and her skillset is well matched to our people agenda and attracting and retaining talented people.”  

Prior to joining the Findex team, Ms Nell worked for several large organisations operating in complex environments including BlueScope, Campbell Soup Company and NBN Co. 

“It is currently a dynamic job market globally and as Australian employers, we need to reframe how we engage with our existing talent and standout to the next generation. The Findex leadership team is very much cognisant of this and I am excited to hit the ground running with this talented team,” Ms Nell said. 

“I pride myself in providing pragmatic solutions at all levels — the enterprise, executive leadership team, functional, and individual levels — catalysing organisational changes, that ultimately make a difference in the long run,” she added.

Ms Nell will be joining the 2,700 strong staff that are currently employed by Findex across Australia and New Zealand, servicing a client base of over 250,000 clients and over $17 billion funds under advice. 

Findex recently added over 50 new Partners and Associate Partners in both metro and regional Australia and New Zealand to its ranks, laying the foundations for a stronger, more united support system across the markets.
