Dealer group Easton Wealth has appointed a former executive in BT’s financial advice division as its head of advice governance.
Victoria Whitty will have responsibility for managing the risk, governance and compliance functions for Easton Wealth’s advice business, according to a statement.
Prior to joining Easton, Ms Whitty worked at BT Financial Advice in leadership, supporting the management of complex operations, compliance, risk and HR matters.
Ms Whitty’s previous experience includes working as the risk and compliance lead for BT licensees Magnitude and Securitor, and working at ANZ where she led and performed governance reviews across advice, private and retail banking, with a stint in institutional property.
She will report directly to the chief executive of Easton Wealth, Grahame Evans.
“We are excited and privileged to have Victoria on board to lead us through this important stage of change in improving the quality of advice and the professionalism of our practices,” Mr Evans said.
“She joins at a time of major sea change with the code of ethics, increased education standards and a focus on acting efficiently, honestly and fairly in dealing with all clients.
“Her experience and background will add substantially to our already strong team at Easton Wealth.”
