Bronwyn Shanks Appointed General Manager

For immediate use:

Bronwyn Shanks

Financial services mover and shaker Bronwyn Shanks has been lured back to New Zealand to head a national financial advisory focused on maximising consolidation moves in the sector. She has been appointed General Manager of ASFG 2008 Ltd – formerly Apex Financial.

Bronwyn was based in the UK as Sales Manager Central Europe for Zurich International, but says this latest opportunity was just too good to miss. Prior to moving to the UK, Bronwyn was first an AXA adviser in New Zealand and then held marketing, product and business development roles with Asteron. She has a Graduate Diploma Financial Planning and is close to completing her Bachelor of Business Studies (Finance).
