Broderick named Mercer chief strategy officer

Executive Move


Mercer has named Saranne Broderick as its first chief strategy officer.

Broderick joins the organisation from Deloitte where she spent the last two years involved in the NAB/MLC de-merger. She was involved in all aspects of the program including governance and APRA submissions. She previously spent several years with ANZ as customer director for wealth divestment and was a management consultant with EY.

She's been appointed alongside Helen Murdoch, who was named sales and commercial acceleration leader. "As the opportunities in the market change, so must we," said Mercer Pacific region president and Australian CEO David Bryant. "Increasingly, our clients are coming to us with complex needs, and we have the ability to add greater value by bringing the diverse capabilities and solutions across our business together.

"In these newly-created roles, Helen and Saranne will oversee and drive our capabilities in sales, commercial acceleration, and strategy, so that we can deliver a holistic offering to our clients and drive growth for the business, and for the benefit of our clients," said Bryant."

Broderick joins the organisation in April and will look after business analytics, insights, and strategic planning.
