Asteron Life has added to its distribution team with the hire of David Plant as executive manager of operations and strategy implementation.

Plant will manage the operations and shared services function across Asteron Life’s adviser distribution business, and will work on aligning focus and strategy across the division.

Asteron Life executive general manager for adviser distribution Jordan Hawke said Plant’s role was vital to the alignment of business strategy across Asteron Life’s various divisions.

“David brings strong experience in strategic management and working closely with advisers on business solutions, and I am confident he will enable us to cohesively drive the execution of our strategy across our adviser distribution business,” Hawke said.

Plant was most recently general manager of operations at Aon Hewitt Financial Advice, where he was responsible for operations, governance and strategy implementation in the Aon Hewitt Financial Advice Australian financial service licence.

He has 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry. His experience includes operations management, business solutions, customer and adviser service, administration, and sales and marketing in the advice distribution, life insurance and funds management sectors.
