Commenting on the appointment, AMP chairman David Murray said: “Andrea’s considerable experience in financial services as a business leader, non-executive director and an expert in change brings a strong mix of skills to the AMP board.
“Andrea has built trusted relations with government, industry and consumers, and has been a strong advocate for the self-managed superannuation industry, and financial services in general.
“Andrea’s insights into financial advice, wealth management and superannuation will be very valuable to AMP as we continue to simplify and reset our business.”
