Two senior industry leaders join the FSC board

The Financial Services Council has welcomed two senior industry leaders to the FSC board.

AMP CEO Alexis George and BT Financial Group CEO Matt Rady (pictured above, left to right) have been appointed, bringing with them extensive financial services industry experience that will further strengthen the FSC’s advocacy for the industry and its consumers on key policy and regulatory issues, FSC chairman David Bryant has announced.

George has more than three decades of financial services experience, both in Australia and overseas.

From December 2013 to August 2021, she worked at ANZ, where she also served as deputy CEO for nearly four years, driving group-wide strategic initiatives in addition to having responsibility for its shared service centres and banking services. Prior to that, from May 2003 to August 2011, she held senior roles at ING Group with responsibility for banking, insurance, funds management, product, marketing, technology, and operations.

Rady has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services and wealth industries, including executive roles in Macquarie Group, where he worked for 18 years.

He was also CEO at Allianz Retire+ for more than three years. Since taking the helm at BT Financial in 2021, Rady has led the group through a period of significant change. Rady leads BT platforms – including Asgard and BT Panorama, and the margin lending business.

George and Rady “share the FSC’s commitment to a more competitive, efficient, and consumer-focused financial services sector that delivers high quality service, financial advice and wealth products for Australian consumers,” Bryant said.

In a media release, the two new FSC board members commented on the appointment.

“Joining the FSC board is an opportunity to represent AMP’s customers and to ensure our industry, regulators, and government are working together to achieve the best possible financial outcomes for all Australians,” George said.

“I am delighted to be joining the FSC board and am looking forward to working with my fellow directors to support reforms that shape the future of financial services in Australia,” Rady said.
