intelliflo has announced the appointment of its first chief product officer.
Blake Kannady will join the company from Envestnet where he most recently worked as vice-president product director, user experience for almost four years.
Prior to working with Envestnet, Mr Kannady also worked with the Bank of America.
“We’re on a mission to give our customers more innovation and make it easier to widen access to financial advice,” intelliflo chief executive, Nick Eatock, said.
“Blake’s experience in our industry and his focus on and passion for an incredible end-user experience will make a huge impact on our business.”
The news comes after former MLC acting group executive Geoff Rogers was also announced to join intelliflo as head of Australia in April.
“Geoff is an important addition to our global business and his extensive experience and expertise will further strengthen our capabilities to support Australian financial advisers with the most advanced open architecture solutions to grow their businesses,” Mr Eatock said at the time.
“Financial advice has never been more important, and all our data shows that the pandemic has dramatically accelerated the adoption of technology by both advisers and their clients.
“We are excited by the opportunity and responsibility we have in helping Australian financial advisers and their businesses thrive.”
