AMP Capital has appointed Margaret Payn to the position of Chief Financial Officer, effective 1 February 2013.
As part of AMP Capital’s senior leadership team reporting to AMP Capital Managing Director Stephen Dunne, Ms Payn will oversee AMP Capital’s finance operations across the company’s global operations.
Mr Dunne said with more than 20 years’ domestic and international experience leading finance, strategy, operations and risk functions Ms Payn would prove a very invaluable addition to the team.
“Margaret brings deep knowledge of financial services, particularly across all aspects of funds management,” Mr Dunne said.
“She joins us at a time when we’re expanding internationally and deepening our investment capabilities while driving for efficiency in everything we do,” he said.
Over the past three years Ms Payn worked with Suncorp, Westpac and Lloyds International, undertaking capital, productivity and finance initiatives.
Between 2006 and 2009 she worked at ANZ in a number of roles including Group Managing Director Strategy and Marketing, where she drove the design and implementation of a new customer-centric business model.
Ms Payn has also held a variety of senior finance roles at Schroders in Sydney, London and Hong Kong.
She is a chartered accountant and started her career at KPMG in London.
The new appointment comes after Finance Director Jim Dawson announced last year he was leaving AMP Capital in late February 2013 to pursue other opportunities, having spent three years in the role.
