Zenith has also appointed Ben Bell to the role of business development manager – NSW and WA. He will be based in the Sydney office and will report to Glenn Boyes.

Zenith COO, Jason Huddy, says the promotion of Glenn and appointment of Ben come at an important time in the development of the business as it continues to expand its product and service offering to clients nationally in 2023.
“Glenn has significant experience in serving wealth management clients and leading product delivery teams across the market and we’re confident that our growing client base will further benefit from this,” Jason says.
“With over 25 years’ experience in the financial services and fintech sectors, Glenn is a leader in the delivery of technology, research and advice solutions. His experience covers a wide range of industry segments including advice, data, research, wealth management, superannuation, portfolio management and compliance.

Jason said Ben Bell also brings extensive industry experience to the role.
“Ben will work across all brands in the business to support our client relationships, and his experience working with financial advice groups nationally to help them create cost-effective and transparent managed account portfolio solutions will stand him in good stead in this role.
“His previous business development experience in NSW and WA means he has a solid network of contacts and a strong industry knowledge. This will be of huge benefit as Zenith continues to expand its product offering into the NSW and WA markets.”
