Two new board members for Bennelong

12 July 2016

Bennelong Funds Management (Bennelong) today announces the appointment of two new Non-Executive Directors to its board - Vicki Allen and Lincoln McMahon.

Vicki Allen is an experienced Non-Executive Director, with an executive career of over 25 years in the financial services and property investment industries. Vicki provides strong governance expertise across regulated entities and her executive roles included senior strategic, product, operations and advisory roles at The Trust Company, MLC and Lend Lease Corporation.

Lincoln McMahon brings with him extensive CEO and COO experience, as has held senior roles in asset management, insurance and banking around the globe. Lincoln previously worked as COO at BlackRock, which included a position on the board and CFO responsibilities. Prior to this, Lincoln was CEO at HSBC Insurance and Superannuation, which included a board role in Mexico City.

“The appointment of Vicki and Lincoln, coupled with the addition of Andrea Waters earlier this year, comes at an exciting time for Bennelong. Over the past year, the launch of new funds and the acquisition of new boutiques has seen the company grow exponentially with plans well underway to continue on our growth trajectory. The addition of these three new board members allows Bennelong to continue its vision of expansion, both locally and offshore” said Bennelong Chair, Mike Pratt.

Mike Pratt was honoured as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the Queen’s Birthday 2016 Honours List, the highest recognition for outstanding achievement and service to the Australian community.
