AMP shakes up leadership of SMSF business

AMP’s SMSF administration firm SuperConcepts has announced a broader restructure of its leadership team following the departure of its interim CEO last month.

Finance manager Mark Bailey will be promoted to chief financial officer following the departure of interim chief executive Adrian Urquhart, SuperConcepts said in a statement.

People and culture executive manager Sherry Midgley will be promoted to general manager and sit on the leadership team, while Garth Montgomery will also be elevated to the leadership team as executive manager of communications and content to oversee all matters affecting corporate and public affairs.

Chief operating officer James Fitzpatrick has decided to take up an opportunity outside of the SMSF sector after three years with SuperConcepts and will be finishing up in mid-June. In his place will be two newly created positions.


General manager of product, risk and strategy is a new role that is currently undergoing a recruitment process, while general manager of growth is the final role that is also in the process of recruitment and will be announced shortly.

SuperConcepts chief executive Lara Bourguignon said the new roles will strengthen its leadership team with a view of best serving our clients.

“Our existing leadership team has a long tenure with deep experience and I’m excited to be adding to it by promoting from within and identifying new roles that will help better serve our clients and business objectives,” Ms Bourguignon said.

Ms Bourguignon also thanked Mr Fitzpatrick for his contribution.

“SuperConcepts is incredibly grateful for the immense contribution James has made over the past three years,” she said.

“James has achieved huge professional goals and we wish him well in his decision to move to the next phase of his career.”
