MetLife has added 10 senior hires in the year to date across banking, finance and insurance as the company "gears up for growth in the Australian market".

The total operations of MetLife Insurance in Australia have been increased by 25 people in 2015, with 10 senior executives joining the company.

Jeremy Simmons joined the firm as new head of operations and service delivery in April, while Joshua McKenzie was recruited as direct contact centre manager in March.


Mr Simmons comes from TAL, while Mr McKenzie makes the move from Stream Live in the UK.

MetLife Australia chief executive Deanne Stewart said the appointments would benefit the company's superannuation fund clients and their members.

"Our Australian team continues to expand, in line with our growth in this market. We’re delighted to have both Jeremy and Joshua on board. Their experience and strategic outlook will be critical as we position ourselves for growth in coming years.

"Our clients and customers are at the centre of everything we do at MetLife. Our new team members ensure we are in the best possible position to face the industry challenges ahead and capture new opportunities, while all the time improving service to customers," Ms Stewart said.
