GBST has made two new Australian-based appointments to its Executive Team with Stacey Kelly joining as Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and the internal promotion of Marie Maky as its first ever Chief People Officer (CPO). This follows the recent appointment of UK based Chief Commercial Officer (COO), Kirsty Worgan, rounding out GBST’s new Executive with three additional and highly experienced members. All report to global CEO, Robert DeDominicis.
Stacey will play a key role in developing and implementing corporate strategy – alongside GBST Board members from private equity firm Anchorage Capital Partners, its CEO, and the rest of the executive leadership team. There will be an emphasis on optimising financial performance, ensuring the effective management of capital and enhancing shareholder value. The role will also oversee the management of all finance functions and the delivery of relevant shared services for the company.
Stacey brings a depth and breadth of experience in finance, and a solid track record in managing finance teams. Her most recent role was as the CFO of Mainstream Group. Prior to that she held senior roles with Macquarie Telecom, Macquarie Group, Commonwealth Bank Australia and HSBC Bank.
Marie was a Senior HR Business Partner at GBST, a role she had undertaken for one and a half years, and the perfect candidate for the newly created role of CPO. Her roles prior to joining GBST in 2020 included leading teams at Cuscal, eftpos Payments Australia, Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia, Kelly Services, and Cochlear.
Marie said: “As the champion of all things People & Culture, I am looking forward to continuing to work with a team I know well, to implement a program that will increase employee engagement outcomes and drive an intentional culture shift aligned with our new strategic direction.”
Robert DeDominicis, CEO at GBST, said: “I am delighted to welcome Stacey and Marie to the Executive Team and look forward to working alongside both to execute on the exciting growth and expansion plans we have for the wealth management market, both in Australia and internationally.”
Stacey commences her role on 14 July and Marie has already commenced her new role.
