AMP Capital has announced it has created a new position, managing director Australia. The position will bring all the retail and institutional client teams for the Australian region under one role.

Marsha Beck, head of AMP Capital’s global consultant and account management strategy for the Asia Pacific client division since 2015, will take on the position.

AMP Capital Director Asia Pacific Craig Keary said the creation of an MD Australia role follows a challenging and dynamic 12-month period for both the industry and AMP Capital’s Australian business.

He said, “I am delighted Marsha will be leading the Australian client teams. While we reset and refocus our efforts domestically, it’s important that we have the right leadership in Australia to navigate this period, ensure that we put clients at the centre of our business and set us up for future success.

“The strong qualities Marsha brings in terms of customer advocacy and engagement with clients will be important as we reposition our Australian business.

“Having direct responsibility of Australia will deliver increased focus on establishing strong relationships with our key clients and partners while driving greater collaboration and integration across our Australian distribution and investment businesses.”

Reporting to Tokyo-based AMP Capital director Asia Pacific, Craig Keary, the role is effective immediately.
