The wealth giant has announced the appointment of a former Sunsuper chief executive to head AMP Australia as it gears up to transform its advice arm.
In a statement, AMP said it had appointed former Sunsuper CEO Scott Hartley as the chief executive of AMP Australia.
Mr Hartley, who headed the industry fund from 2014 to 2019, would report to AMP CEO Francesco De Ferrari and “lead the strategic transformation of AMP Australia”, the group said.
“Mr Hartley brings the valued experience of leading the transformation of Sunsuper’s culture, technology, investment, and multi-channel growth capabilities,” AMP said.
“This transformation enabled Sunsuper to grow its market share to become Australia’s fourth largest superannuation and retirement business, a highly regarded industry leader, and most importantly to deliver leading customer outcomes and experience.”
“Scott has an excellent track record in transforming and growing wealth and investment businesses in Australia, and we’re delighted to welcome him to AMP,” Mr De Ferrari said.
“At Sunsuper he developed a collaborative and inclusive culture that drove the outstanding performance of the organisation. His appointment will strengthen our executive team as we drive forward our transformation of the business.”
“I’m excited to be joining AMP at a pivotal time for the company,” Mr Hartley said.
“The business is in the midst of a transformation, to which I can bring my experience and capability.”
Mr Hartley had also led the corporate and institutional wealth business at MLC prior to his role at Sunsuper.
