The FSC has appointed Sean West, executive director and head of wealth management at Macquarie Banking and Financial Services Group and Justin Delaney, Zurich Australia's chief executive - life and investments. 

West joined Macquarie Group in 2011 and held several senior executive roles before becoming Head of Wealth Management in April 2019. West brings more than 20 years’ experience in financial services having worked in financial advice, investment management, life insurance, private banking, superannuation, and wealth platform. 

Delaney has had more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, and before joining Zurich in December 2019, he was the chief operating officer for TAL Australia and spent 12 years working with wealth products and platforms at Macquarie Group. 

David Bryant, FSC chair said both brought an immense wealth of knowledge across all portfolio areas of the FSC. 

“Justin and Sean are welcome additions to the FSC board, together bringing more than 45 years' experience to the table,” Bryant said.  

“Their respective abilities and commitment to help grow and protect the long-term financial wellbeing of Australians will be valued on the FSC board, and we look forward to working with them.”
