Former CFP GM joins industry fund

A former Commonwealth Financial Planning (CFP) GM has joined an industry fund as chief executive.

Mine Wealth + Wellbeing announced last week that Harry Mitchell would take over from interim chief executive Nicole Killen.

Ms Killen assumed the position following the departure of Bruce Watson in February. Mr Mitchell joins the industry fund from CFP where he served as its GM.

Mine Wealth + Wellbeing chair Grahame Kelly said after a "robust" recruitment process, Mr Mitchell's appointment was "unanimous" among board members.

"Harry meets the board's goal of a CEO who is aligned to the culture and values, and has a dedicated commitment to building ongoing member benefits," Mr Kelly said.

"His proven ability to lead large teams, transform businesses and execute strategic imperatives will help Mine Wealth + Wellbeing further differentiate and expand."

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Mitchell said: "I look forward to working with everyone at the fund to further innovate and drive greater value for members."
