RI Advice Group gets new CEO
ANZ’s RI Advice Group has a new chief executive officer, who steps in after former CEO Darren Whereat moved into a new role within the bank earlier this year.
According to a LinkedIn post, Peter Ornsby, RI Advice Group’s senior national manager of advice and operations, has stepped into the CEO role.
Mr Ornsby joined RI Advice in 2004, the post said, having worked in the travel industry for 20 years.
“It is a business I have grown incredibly passionate about. My passion is driven by the enthusiasm of our advisers (and their staff) who are absolutely committed to driving great outcomes for their clients. They are an extremely professional group of people who have also been extremely loyal to RI,” he said.
“We have a number of challenges ahead, but with the strong tailwind behind us with almost 200 committed advisers, we can make RI the leading brand in financial advice.
“I am excited to be taking on this new role and look forward to the challenges, opportunities and celebrating achievements along the way,” he said.
