Findex Group Limited, one of the largest privately-owned financial advisory and accounting services providers in Australasia, has appointed Lianne Bolton as Chief Financial Officer. With over 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, Bolton has held various executive roles in South Africa, the UK, and Australia. In her new role, she will be responsible for driving the strategic direction of the cross-functional financial team at Findex, with a focus on championing growth in regional Australia during a transformational period for the industry. The company aims to triple the size of its wealth practice from AUD$17 billion to upwards of AUD$50 billion, and Bolton will be instrumental in achieving that target.
Findex's recent senior leadership reshuffle saw Co-Founder Spiro Paule take on the role of Managing Director, while COO Tony Roussos and former CFO Matthew Games became Co-CEOs. Bolton, who has held previous CFO positions at Maia Financial and Credabl, is expected to work closely with this senior leadership team to achieve Findex's strategic goals.
“In my role at Findex, I want to challenge what people typically expect out of a Chief Financial Officer," Bolton said. “I hope to build relationships across the business and with our stakeholders, showcasing how my team and I can contribute with meaningful insights and provide crucial wider market context."
Bolton is passionate about mentorship and hopes to be a visible and empowering leader to her team and the business. Findex recently added 57 new partners and associate partners to its ranks, establishing a stronger support system across metro and regional Australia and New Zealand.
