IOOF makes senior hire to advice team

IOOF has recruited a veteran with more than 20 years’ experience in the financial services sector to boost its advice team as the new general manager of advice delivery.

Leanne Gregory-Aylett joins IOOF with more than 20 years’ experience across advice, wealth management, banking and superannuation.

She has held key senior roles including general manager MLC Business Solutions, general manager of retail sales for ME Bank, director of aligned channels business development for AMP Financial Services and non-executive director for Aftercare.

Ms Gregory-Aylett is a founding member of Financial Executive Women, an organisation where women mentor other women to help them reach their career potential.


IOOF general manager of advice Darren Whereat said the role has been newly created as the wealth manager continues to build a higher quality and more efficient advice business.

“Leanne will be responsible for delivering critical functions for licensees, including advice systems and technology, Aadvice innovation, IOOF Advice Academy, adviser marketing and events, operations and training and advice research,” Mr Whereat said.

“This continues the building of our capabilities to execute our advice-led strategy while retaining a flat and agile structure that enables us to remain close to our advisers and clients.

“Most recently, Leanne has been consulting on a range of strategic assignments. She brings a deep understanding of the regulatory environment and a passion for creating value for advisers and their clients.”
