The accounting and advisory firm has appointed a former commercial director of insurance group Aon as its new chief growth officer.
Chris Carey will step into the newly created role, joining from Aon Australia, where he led the distribution strategy and execution as national director of commercial sales.
“My focus will be equipping and empowering the Findex team with the technology, capabilities and a culture that will deliver sustained and significant growth in the years ahead,” Mr Carey said.
“As a trusted adviser to thousands of organisations across Australia and New Zealand, I’m looking forward to expanding Findex’s opportunities while supporting the impressive existing client base and deepening our regional community relationships.”
Mr Carey has also held the role of executive vice president at Combined Insurance, managing director at FleetPartners, and vice president of sales, APAC, at Hewlett Packard Financial Services. Findex CEO Spiro Paule said Mr Carey’s appointment comes in what has been “a challenging year for business”.
“Findex’s financial counsel, strategy and support has been a lifeline for many of our 250,000 clients during this unprecedented year, spanning agriculture, education, professional services, health care and many more,” Mr Paule said.
“Chris’ appointment to chief growth officer will enable us to expand our offering to the sectors that we’re already specialised in and begin to offer our services to new industries as the region gears up for economic recovery.”
