Vanguard appoints head of superannuation

Vanguard has announced three new appointments to its Australian executive team, including a lead for its new superannuation offering.

Michael Lovett will return to Melbourne from Vanguard's US head office to lead Vanguard Australia's planned superannuation offer in January 2020.

Lovett will leave his role on Vanguard's Financial Adviser Services team in the US, where he has been leading the registered investment adviser channel since early 2017.

Prior to his role in the US, Lovett served as Vanguard Australia's head of distribution for three years.

Vanguard Australia managing director Frank Kolimago said: "Michael's significant experience puts him in a strong position to lead our superannuation undertaking as we develop this new offer with both individual investors and financial advisers in mind."

Additionally, Maxim Tambling has joined the company as the new head of human resources and Louise Eyres is set to commence as head of marketing.

Tambling has worked in human resources for 18-years, having worked for a number of domestic and global organisations in Australia and the UK.

Eyres will commence in the newly created head of marketing role in December this year.  She will lead a Melbourne based team as Vanguard splits its product and marketing function into two separate functions.

Evan Reedman, who led the joint product and marketing function, will continue to lead the separate product function.

All three of the new appointments will report directly to Kolimago.

"As the Australian business continues to develop our organisational capabilities in support of investors, financial advisers and institutions, we're excited to welcome Louise, Maxim and Michael to bring a valuable mix of expertise and experience to Vanguard Australia," Kolimago said.
