Investment research provider Zenith has recruited former Legg Mason marketing manager Anthony Pesutto to head the company’s marketing and communications efforts.

In this new role, Pesutto will be responsible for forming a marketing and communications platform to help expand the firm’s current research, advice and portfolio solutions business.

Pesutto, who will report to managing partner David Wright, has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services marketing and investment research, including roles with Legg Mason, Mercer and Lonsec.

Wright said Pesutto’s track record included a blend of technical and creative knowledge that would help the company grow in the financial advice market.

Elsewhere, online investment platform Macrovue has appointed SuperConcepts chief executive Natasha Fenech and AMP director of strategic marketing & customer experience Rod Finch to its board.

Fenech has more than two decades of experience in the finance sector, including as executive general manager for customer product and pricing of personal insurance at Suncorp, and has a track record of delivering consistent and sustainable results with leading finance and insurance companies, the company said.

Finch has been in his current role with AMP since 2013 and previously held a number of senior roles with UK bank Lloyds.

Macrovue chief executive Sid Sahgal said the group, which is partially owned by AMP, had built a solution that offered world-class expertise to Australian investors, and the new hires would bring a fresh perspective.

Finch said he was excited to play a role in implementing the group’s vision.

“Macrovue’s innovative approach to thematic investment has it well positioned for growth in an emerging sector of the market, providing consumers and advisers with greater choice and access to markets,” Finch said.

Fenech added that she was also looking forward to working with the Macrovue team given her experience with self-managed superannuation fund investors, who were heavily exposed to the equities market.
