Tim Poskitt, Country Manager for Australia and New Zealand at Envestnet | Yodlee recently announced several changes and key hires to the Sydney-based team to help support Envestnet | Yodlee’s continued expansion in the region.
“First, I’m thrilled to announce we’re promoting Lauren Applegate to Director. She is fully committed to Envestnet | Yodlee’s mission of helping Australians become financially-savvy as anyone on our team,” said Poskitt. “At the same time, we’re expanding the sales and customer success team because we want to continue to be proactive and get the word out about how we can help firms take advantage the digital transformation that’s happening now in financial services.”
Poskitt also noted they’ve added four new members to their Sydney office, including:
