AMP names 2014 leadership team

AMP has announced the composition of its new group leadership team to take effect from January 2014, following the announcement of a new group chief executive officer.

“I’m excited to announce the team that will take AMP forward as we enter the next phase of our evolution,” Mr Meller said. “This new simpler structure will allow us to sharpen our focus on customers and respond to emerging opportunities more rapidly.”

The new group leadership team is made up of:

  • Lee Barnett – Chief information officer, responsible for AMP’s information technology function, workspace and sourcing.
  • Pauline Blight-Johnston – Group executive insurance and superannuation, responsible for AMP’s risk insurance, retail superannuation, investment and pensions, and platforms business portfolios.
  • Rob Caprioli – Group executive advice and banking, responsible for AMP’s advice, banking and corporate superannuation business portfolios.
  • Stephen Dunne – Managing director AMP Capital, responsible for AMP’s investment management, investment performance and Asian growth strategy portfolios.
  • Gordon Lefevre – Chief financial officer, responsible for AMP’s finance function, effective 1 March 2014.
  • Matthew Percival – Group executive public affairs and chief of staff, responsible for AMP’s public affairs function and the office of the CEO.
