KPMG has today announced the appointment of Maryanne Scroggie and David Duncan to its wealth management and superannuation advisory business, with the firm noting that the moves reflect an ongoing investment in "the profit for member and wealth sector and its intent to meet client demand for global and leading practice thinking alongside practical industry experience".
Ms Scroggie joins from UniSuper, where she has most recently led the corporate marketing function. She has previously held senior marketing roles with both Cbus and Media Super.
In her new role as associate director, Ms Scroggie will be responsible for supporting profit-for-member clients in managing issues relating to member engagement, policy and retirement.
"We are delighted to be further expanding our wealth and superannuation practice," said David Bardsley, KPMG director of wealth management advisory.
"Maryanne’s skills and experience fill a genuine market gap and I’m excited to have her help our clients manage the member engagement, policy and retirement issues with which they are currently grappling."
Mr Duncan joins from Macquarie Wealth, bringing with him extensive specialist experience in financial advice.
"KPMG sees first-hand the rate of change and resulting challenges and opportunities facing the superannuation sector. We are committed to recruiting the expertise needed to ensure our clients have access to some of the industry’s best people to partner with them in solving the problems they face," Mr Bardsley concluded.
