SSGA appoints new Head of SPDR ETFs for Australia

Executive Move


State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) has announced the appointment of Meaghan Victor as its new head of SPDR ETFs in Australia, effective September 2017.

In this role, Victor will be responsible for leading, managing and growing the SPDR ETF business, building new solutions across sales, marketing, capital markets, products and infrastructure.

Based in Sydney, Victor will report to Rory Tobin, global co-head of SPDR ETFs for SSGA.

Victor has more than 20 years' experience in financial services, including senior leadership roles in asset management and Australian distribution. She joins SSGA from BT Financial Group where she was national partnership manager. Previously, she held roles in sales management, strategy and product development at KBC Asset Management and Fidelity International.

Commenting on her appointment at SSGA, Tobin said: “Appointing Meaghan to lead our Australian ETF business advances our goals of having a strong global leadership team in place that is committed to serving our clients. The depth of experience Meaghan brings to this role will allow SSGA to build on the continued success of the SPDR ETF business in Australia and reinforces our commitment to providing investors with a comprehensive suite of investment solutions.”

Victor replaces Shaun Parkin, who moved into an institutional role with SSGA in Perth earlier in the year.
