La Trobe Financial has announced two changes to its executive team.
Ms Cheree Cain, who has been with La Trobe Financial for 11 years, has been promoted to executive head of investor operations.
Ms Cain began her career with ASIC where she worked for over 13 years in supervisory roles before joining La Trobe Financial in December 2003.
She soon found her niche in leading the investor liaison team in the growing retail Mortgage Fund operations, which services over 10,550 retail mum-and-dad investors.
This retail arm of La Trobe Financial is now the largest fund of its type in Australia with over $810 million of retail investments.
The group has also promoted Ms Caterina Nesci to executive head of communications.
Ms Nesci has over 10 years’ experience working in various roles with a number of international organisations in Australia, London and Hong Kong.
In June 2010, she returned to Melbourne after working in Asia as marketing and events manager.
“Caterina has made a significant contribution with the company’s brand positioning, marketing and events and we all believe we are yet to see some of her greatest work,” La Trobe Financial president and CEO Greg O’Neill said.
