AMP changes leadership team

Major financial services company AMP Limited has announced a series of changes to its senior leadership team, which will see three executives leave the organisation.

Effective from 1 January 2017, the changes will see several AMP members move to leadership roles and will result in three executives leaving the organisation as part of a move to create “clearer accountability for driving short-term business performance and delivering longer-term growth”. Management of the other divisions will not change.

The three executives that will leave the organisation are: Pauline Blight-Johnston, group executive, insurance, super and risk management; Rob Caprioli, group executive, advice and banking; and Wendy Thorpe, group executive operations.  

Ms Thorpe had reportedly previously advised of her intent to retire and will leave the business in “early 2017” after “helping to ensure the smooth transition of the operations function”. She will then join the board of AMP Bank as a non-executive director. 

The new members of the team include:
