Steve Kane has been affirmed as Advantedge's new general manager of broker platforms, after acting in the role following the departure of Steve Weston to Barclays in the UK.

NAB’s executive general manager of growth partnerships Antony Cahill said Kane was one of the most experienced and capable people in the industry.

"I am confident that he will take our platforms business to the next level in terms of strategyand future growth," he said.

In his previous role as CEO of FAST, Kane was responsible for the overall financial and operational performance of the aggregation business, which was later purchased by Challenger Financial Services and then NAB. Kane was appointed as CEO of FAST in August 2006.

NAB has said it will commence a search to replace Kane at FAST, and during this time David O’Toole, the national sales manager, will continue to act as CEO of FAST.
