Mercer’s footprint in the Pacific market as an industry leader in terms of financial services has been strengthened with the promotion of Melbourne based Andrew Godfrey to Senior Partner, making him part of a select local group of six, and 142 Senior Partners globally, or approximately 1% of the organisation’s workforce.
Mr Godfrey has held several senior and high impact roles within Mercer’s Financial Services business over many years and was most recently promoted to the role of Mercer’s Financial Services Leader in April last year.
“This recognition of Andrew’s contribution to the firm and our clients, particularly in terms of driving innovation and growth, is testament to the tremendous talent we have in our own backyard at Mercer,” said Mr Ben Walsh, Managing Director and Pacific Market Leader, and fellow Senior Partner at Mercer.
“Andrew has strong leadership experience and a strong track-record in initiating and driving change while also helping to drive improved service capability through the development of people and teams.
“Senior Partners are selected by the global Executive Leadership Team based on the demonstration of sustained leadership and financial achievements. This is a significant career milestone and wonderful recognition of Andrew’s contribution to our clients, our colleagues and our firm,” Mr Walsh said.
With over twenty five years’ experience in financial services, Mr Godfrey has played an integral role as a leader in the business, and assumed executive accountability for achieving strategic objectives as a member of the Mercer’s Pacific Market Leadership Team.
