"We've created this role as a key element of our refreshed global strategy," said Milestone CEO Paul Roberts, "which puts additional weight and attention not he APAC markets, with Australia and New Zealand being a focus."
Azer will be responsible for market engagement, client success, and the organisation's go-to-market strategy.
"Milestone Group has put significant energy into becoming a regocnised global player, innovator and category leader in key disciplines. With this accomplished, Marian's background and commitment to innovation is ideally suited to our agenda, making it an exciting time to lead our APAC and Australian business as we begin this chapter of sharing international capabilities and solutions with the market for the benefit of our clients and their investors," said Roberts.

"I have watched Milestone Group grow and evolve over the years and have always been impressed by the way it thinks differently to solve the challenges our industry faces," said Azer. "I see a real opportunity to add value at a time when asset owners, managers and servicers are seeking fresh ideas and approaches. I am personally delighted to be leading that effort," she said.
