FASEA fills board vacancy with new director
The government has appointed a new director to FASEA’s board almost four months after the resignation of CountPlus managing director Matthew Rowe.
Hamilton Wealth managing director Will Hamilton began his tenure as a part-time director to FASEA as of yesterday, according to a statement from Assistant Minister for Superannuation, Financial Services and Financial Technology, Jane Hume.
He fills in a board vacancy left by Mr Rowe after he stepped down from the FASEA board in August to “focus on his increasing workload at CountPlus”.
Mr Hamilton was previously general manager of wealth services at NAB, head of private wealth management at Goldman Sachs JBWere, and managing director and chief executive of Deutsche Securities Asia in Hong Kong.
He also currently serves as the Commonwealth representative on the Professional Standards Council.
“This appointment will continue the high level of skills and experience available to FASEA, to help ensure that the key sectors of our economy are effectively regulated,” Ms Hume said
Mr Hamilton joins a FASEA board filled by chair Catherine Walter, Mark Brimble, Simon Longstaff, Carolyn Bond, Elissa Freeman, Deborah Kent, Louise Lakomy and Catriona Lowe.
