Ms Smith will leave her role at BOQ Broker in April and join AMP, where she will take responsibility for the adviser and third-party broker channels.
Ms Smith has more than 30 years’ experience in financial services, having first started her career in New Zealand, where she ran Sovereign Home Loans managing the adviser and broker network.
