ING Australia’s chief operating officer and former Cogent/BNP Paribas custody chief, Alexis George, has been posted to the Czech & Slovak Republics.

George will from next February assume a Prague-based role running ING’s life insurance, pension, annuities and mutual fund businesses for the Eastern European region. Having family in Europe, George said she had sought out such a role, and intended to stay in it for at least two to three years. George has only been chief operating officer for a couple of months. Next year she will be replaced by Fred Bertram, an ANZ technology executive who will run a newly-created ‘customer solutions’ business, combining ING’s IT, operations, e-business and customer service functions. George’s previous role as head of personal investments for ING Australia has been filled by David Kan, previously the product manager in that division.
