Wendy Cox has joined Maple-Brown Abbott as head of finance and HR, a new role for the organisation.
Cox's appointment was made alongside the promotion of Lata McNulty as chief risk officer.
"We are delighted to welcome Wendy to Maple-Brown Abbott and to promote Lata who joined us in March," said CEO and MD Sophia Rahmani.
"Both Wendy and Lata are exceptional candidates for these roles, with diverse, global experience with a variety of top-tier firms, and exemplify the cultural attributes we seek out."
Cox was most recently with RF Capital as finance consultant. She spent several years with Challenger as a financial controller. She spent time with CBA, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital, and Deloitte in the UK, US, and South Africa.
"We are actively seeking to grow our business through organic growth of our existing investment strategies and looking to add new investment strategies, and Wendy's experience will be vital in setting up and structuring this growth," said Rahmani.
