Andrea is a chartered accountant who had an extensive career at KPMG as a financial services audit partner specialising in managed investments and superannuation.

“Andrea joins us at an exciting time, with growth afoot as we work towards realising the expanding potential of our business.

“The change in board members, bringing new energy and a broad skill set, will enable the business to achieve this vision,” said Bennelong Chair, Mike Pratt.
