Today AMP Capital announced Marsha Beck had been appointed in the newly created position of Managing Director Australia. This brings all the retail and institutional client teams for the Australian region under one role.
This new role has been created to further strengthen resourcing in Australia, a key and important market where AMP Capital has partnered for many years across a large and diverse client base.
AMP Capital Director Asia Pacific Craig Keary said the creation of an MD Australia role follows a challenging and dynamic 12-month period for both the industry and AMP Capital’s Australian business.
“I am delighted Marsha will be leading the Australian client teams. While we reset and refocus our efforts domestically, it’s important that we have the right leadership in Australia to navigate this period, ensure that we put clients at the centre of our business and set us up for future success.
“The strong qualities Marsha brings in terms of customer advocacy and engagement with clients will be important as we reposition our Australian business. Having direct responsibility of Australia will deliver increased focus on establishing strong relationships with our key clients and partners while driving greater collaboration and integration across our Australian distribution and investment businesses.
Reporting to Tokyo-based AMP Capital Director Asia Pacific, Craig Keary, the role is effective immediately.
