AMP confirms CFO appointment

AMP Ltd has confirmed the appointment of James Georgeson as CFO from February 3. Georgeson has been AMP’s acting CFO since August 2019. He will now formally join AMP’s group leadership team, reporting directly to chief executive Francesco De Ferrari.

In a statement to the ASX, AMP said Georgeson’s appointment followed an external and internal search to find a CFO that best aligned with AMP’s requirements.

Georgeson had extensive experience in senior finance roles. Before his role as acting CFO, he was AMP deputy CFP.

He has also served as the CFO of AMP’s Australian wealth management business and CFO of AMP NZ.

Ferrari said he was “delighted” to officially welcome Georgeson to the role of CFO.

“He has proved his capability in the role of acting CFO and deputy CFO, earning the trust of his peers, the broader organisation, and our investors,” De Ferrari said.

“He brings the experience and deep knowledge of AMP that will help to drive the execution of our strategy as we transform into to a client-led, simpler, growth-orientated business.”
