Bruce+hawkins

Managed Accounts Holdings (ASX:MGP) has announced the appointment of Bruce Hawkins as chief financial officer. Hawkins joins MGP as shareholders are due to vote on a name change to Xplore Wealth.

Hawkins has more than 25 years’ experience in the superannuation and wealth management industry. His organisational experience includes change management, consulting and leadership roles with MLC/National Australia Bank, Aviva Australia and ESS Super, MGP said.

Commenting on his appointment, Hawkins said: “The chance to join the Company during this period of brand, platform and operational renewal and guided by a Board focused on growth opportunities is somewhat rare. I of course accepted with both hands."

Chair Peter Brook added: “We are delighted to welcome Bruce Hawkins in the critical CFO role and to also benefit from his sector expertise...The experience Bruce brings is difficult to replicate, particularly his hands-on knowledge with business transformation and customer experience within platform administration and superannuation."

Hawkins replaces Don Sharp who has been acting in the role of CFO following the January 2019 departure of Mark Pozzi.
