Long-serving BT head of platforms Kelly Power has jumped ship to competitor Colonial First State.
BT's head of platforms Kelly Power has made the move to rival Colonial First State after a nine-year career at Westpac.
Ms Power joined St.George in 2005 before it was acquired by Westpac in October 2008. She went on to take responsibility for Asgard, BT Wrap and later the management and strategic direction of BT Panorama.
A spokesperson for BT confirmed to InvestorDaily Ms Power had left the company. InvestorDaily understands a formal announcement by Colonial First State about Ms Power's position will be made in the new year.

The BT spokesperson said, "We thank Kelly for the outstanding contribution she has made to our organisation over a number of years.
