Mercer’s role as a leader in the financial services industry has been strengthened with the promotion of Andrew Godfrey into the role of Financial Services Business Leader, Pacific, effective immediately.
Mr Godfrey will succeed Ben Walsh in the position, who had recently been promoted into the role of Mercer Managing Director and Market Leader, as the firm looks to bolster its stance in the Pacific market.
Ben Walsh, Managing Director and Market Leader, Pacific at Mercer, said “Andrew is a proven leader and I’m thrilled to appoint him as my successor in Financial Services at Mercer. His appointment is testament to the tremendous talent we have at Mercer.
“Andrew has strong experience in leadership positions, boasting a strong track-record in initiating and driving change while also helping to drive improved service capability through the development of people and teams.
“He has held several senior and high impact roles within the Financial Services business over many years and more recently has actively led our strategy development and execution, established our transformation program, and positively impacted the financial management of Financial Services,” said Mr Walsh.
With over twenty five years’ experience in financial services, Mr Godfrey most recently held the position of Operations Excellence Leader at Mercer. He has played an integral role as a leader in the business, and assumed executive accountability for achieving strategic objectives as a member of the Mercer Financial Services Leadership Team.
Mr Godfrey will continue to be located in Melbourne, and joins Mercer’s Pacific Market Leadership Team within his new role.
