Avanti Finance Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Fred Ohlsson as its new Group CEO.
Fred joins Avanti in February from Amplifi Group where he was Managing Director. He has extensive experience in senior leadership roles in New Zealand and Australia, primarily at ANZ where he led the Australian division from 2016 to 2019.
Avanti Finance Founder and Chairman, Glenn Hawkins says Fred’s background in sales, strategy and leading an experienced team helped him stand out in the recruitment process.
“We were looking for someone who could bring our growth strategy to life and help us increase our market share on both sides of the Tasman. Fred is the person to do that. He’s held senior positions covering a broad range of functions at ANZ, including product, marketing, strategy, and retail and business banking.
“Fred’s experience, leadership style and passion for people and customers is another string to his bow that will allow him to continue to build Avanti over time.”
Fred is excited about the opportunity and is looking forward to getting started.
“I can’t wait to join the team and build on Avanti’s success. There are so many opportunities to grow Avanti and I will be working with the Board to take us to that next level.”
