Ms Platts will be based in Sydney, working alongside account director David Whitby, and will report to Bennelong’s head of distribution, Jonas Daly.
Ms Platts has 16 years of funds management experience, spanning key account, dealer group and adviser relationship management.
This follows the recent appointment of Nathan Masalski as account director, investments, in Victoria and Tasmania.
Prior to joining Bennelong, Ms Platts worked as director, key accounts and adviser business at BetaShares, a position she held since 2018. In this role she was responsible for supporting the business’s distribution activities, working with key accounts and intermediary channels.
Ms Platts has also held roles with iShares, and started her career at Macquarie in 2007 as a relationship consultant.
Mr Daly said Ms Platts’ in-depth industry knowledge and experience in managing key accounts and adviser relationships make her a great addition to Bennelong’s team.
“Mai joins the business at a key time in our development, and will help drive business opportunities across our key markets,” he said.
Ms Platts holds a Bachelor of Agriculture Economics and a Master of Business Law from the University of Sydney.
