BT appoints Head of Platforms as migrations get underway

Today BT announced the appointment of Kieran Varcoe as its new Head of Platforms.

Kieran joins BT with more than 20 years’ wealth and platforms experience, having specialised in product and platform operations at MLC, before joining REST Superannuation where he most recently served as General Manager Administration Solutions & Governance.

Kathy Vincent, BT’s Managing Director, Platforms, Investments & Operations said, “I am delighted that someone with Kieran’s experience will be joining our leadership team. His expertise aligns well with our strategic priorities and will be critical as we continue delivering strategic growth of Australia’s leading platforms business.

“This is a key role in helping to lead BT’s transformation agenda as we migrate clients from BT Wrap (over $55bn FUA) to one of Australia’s contemporary and fastest-growing platforms BT Panorama (over $36bn FUA).”

The first successful migrations took place late last year and further tranches will commence in early 2021.

“Kieran’s proven experience in leading simplification programs, managing large-scale platforms teams and operations, and deep industry knowledge will be an asset to BT,” Ms Vincent said.

Rodney Greenhalgh, Head of Investment Product Solutions has been caretaking in the role while BT sought a suitable replacement for Dina Kotsopoulos who departed the group in October 2020.

Kieran will commence with BT from mid-February reporting to Kathy Vincent, Managing Director, Platforms, Investments & Operations.
