By Josh Needs 12 minute read

Findex Group Limited has selected experienced HR industry expert Kath Nell as its chief people officer to provide strategic leadership to its human resources department.

Findex chief executive Spiro Paule said that being able to recruit Ms Nell was a great result for the firm.

“We are committed to investing in our team and attracting the right talent to provide the highest level of service to our clients,” said Mr Paule.


“Kath is a deeply experienced senior executive and her skillset is well matched to our people agenda and attracting and retaining talented people.”

Findex said that Ms Nell’s role would encompass developing the culture transformation, people solutions, diversity and inclusion, as well as employee progression and retention at the firm.

Ms Nell has previous experience working in large organisations such as BlueScope, Campbell Soup Company and NBN Co.

Her experience at those businesses included her development of organisational change during her five-year tenure at NBN Co, where she led an increase in the company’s culture, leadership and diversity.

While there Ms Nell also translated data into actions that increased the business’ workforce engagement and performance.

Ms Nell said she was looking forward to creating a positive impact on the firm.

“It is currently a dynamic job market globally and as Australian employers we need to reframe how we engage with our existing talent and standout to the next generation,” she said.

“The Findex leadership team is very much cognizant of this and I am excited to hit the ground running with this talented team.”

“I pride myself in providing pragmatic solutions at all levels – the enterprise, executive leadership team, functional, and individual – catalysing organisational changes, that ultimately make a difference in the long run.”

The addition of Ms Nell comes after Findex recently added over 50 new partners and associate partners in Australia and New Zealand.

She joins the 2,700 staff who are currently employed by the firm, which services over 250,000 clients and has more than $17 billion of funds under advice.
