Former TAL leader joins MLC Life Insurance

MLC Life Insurance has welcomed a seasoned financial services professional to its team.

Kent Griffin joins MLC Life as its new chief financial officer, reporting directly to acting CEO Sean McCormack as a member of his leadership team.

In his new role, Griffin will lead both the finance and actuarial teams at MLC Life Insurance, and will be accountable for financial management and internal audit strategies, systems, controls, and governance frameworks to ensure continued compliance with industry and regulatory standards.

Griffin’s “experience will be instrumental as we adapt to the ongoing structural challenges facing the life insurance industry and deliver on the promises we make to our customers and business partners,” McCormack said. “Kent will also play a key role in maintaining our momentum in delivering the most advanced digital ecosystem in the industry to create a great experience for our customers and business partners. I look forward to him joining our leadership team.”

Griffin brings to the firm more than three decades of corporate and consulting experience in financial services, both in Australia and internationally.
