Fidelity Investments has plugged one of the gaps left by a string of recent executive departures with the appointment of Andrew Keay as director, head of intermediary business. Meaghan Unsworth, formerly head of intermediary sales, left in May, while in June, Peter Smyth, then head of operations, including client services, finance, systems, legal and compliance, left to become AMP Capital Investors’ head of product development. Meanwhile, Fidelity has appointed Amanda Tibbett as head of marketing.
Tibbet joins Fidelity from Perpetual, where she was general manager marketing and direct. Fidelity is still searching for a new head of institutional sales, following Jason Ciccolallo’s move to Orbis Investments in April. Keay joins Fidelity from Everest Babcock & Brown, where he was head of distribution. His new role includes responsibility for building the business infrastructure to support Fidelity’s growth strategy, securing ratings with research houses and managing dealer group relationships.
