Australia, 15 April, 2021 – Mercer has announced the appointment of Tricia Nguyen as Head of Mercer Sentinel, Pacific, leading the firm’s outsourced due diligence and custody consulting capabilities. The move sees Ms Nguyen assuming this leadership role effective March 2021, as Peter Baker transitions to a part-time basis.
Mercer’s Institutional Wealth Leader Simon Eagleton said Ms Nguyen’s appointment was the final step of a carefully planned succession strategy.
“We’re delighted to officially appoint Tricia to lead our Mercer Sentinel team, a move that has been more than a year in the making. Tricia has already been taking the lead on Sentinel’s services behind the scenes as part of Peter’s succession planning, and I’m confident this will be a seamless transition,” Mr Eagleton said.
“Peter remains an integral part of the team, and will continue to provide his expertise in a part-time capacity,” he said.
Ms Nguyen joined Mercer in 2015 and has been leading the team in assessing operational risk within investment management operations across all asset classes. Ms Nguyen has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services across asset consulting, custodian operations and relationship management.
As an outcome of this organisational change, Ash Moosa will assume the role of Lead Consultant, heading up Mercer Sentinel’s custody consulting services.
