Perpetual appoints new CFO

Investment and trustee group Perpetual today announced its appointment of Gillian Larkins as its new CFO.

Larkins will take over from Roger Burrows who is to take up the CFO position at infrastructure and transport company Asciano early next year.

Larkins will assume her new role on 7 January 2013, Perpetual said, and is currently Perpetual’s group executive, Transformation Office.

Perpetual’s CEO and managing director, Geoff Lloyd, said Larkins will continue to play a central role in delivering the company’s transformation strategy that was announced in June this year. The transformation strategy is to simplify the company’s corporate structure, refocus its operational activities and capture new opportunities for growth.

“Since joining the company, Gillian has been instrumental in helping the Transformation Office move from the design to the delivery stage and ensuring we are on track to deliver on its objectives,” Lloyd said in a statement.

“The Transformation 2015 program is now well underway and making good progress. Given the importance of the CFO in the execution of the program, having someone in the role that is also intimately familiar with its various initiatives will be beneficial.”

Larkins has previous experience in the CFO role. She was CFO and managing director at Westpac Institutional Bank before joining Perpetual in October this year, and was CFO at Citigroup, Australia and New Zealand.
