Commenting on the announcement Jamie McPherson said: “It has been a privilege to hold the position of Managing Director and I am thankful for the time in the role. I will be pursuing new opportunities shaped by what I have learned over the many years growing the Brisbane team with my colleagues there. I am proud of the growth of DWF in Australia over the last three years, but more so, immensely proud of each of the individuals and teams who have joined the journey over that time.”
Damien van Brunschot, who also leads DWF’s Australian Insurance Group, commended Jamie for his efforts and stewardship of the firm.
“I thank Jamie for his contribution as the inaugural Managing Director of the Australian operation of DWF. Many colleagues and I have worked with Jamie for several years and can attest to his commitment and hard work, all too apparent in the start-up of the Australian business. Jamie can be rightly proud of his leadership in the establishment of DWF in Australia, and we wish him all the best in his future career.”
Mr Brunschot continued: “Despite a tumultuous year, overall business performance of DWF, including its Australian operations, is sound and we’re moving into 2021 on solid footing."
