AMP names NZ national advice manager

AMP has appointed a former Australian executive as general manager of its New Zealand-based financial adviser network, based in Auckland.

The company announced that Richard Brown will be taking up the reins of its growing New Zealand advice business effective immediately, in a role that will entail management of AMP’s regional business development managers.

Mr Brown joins AMP from the telecommunications sector and previously spent six years in Australia working for Swiss security systems corporation Tyco International.

“I’m delighted to welcome Richard to the team and I know he’s looking forward to assisting our financial advisers to success in this ever changing market,” said AMP NZ director of advice and sales Blair Vernon.

“Richard will lead a team of six business development managers across the county who have recently been appointed to support the [AMP financial adviser network] channel.”
