Anna Itsiopoulos
Chief Operating Officer - Praemium Australia

I have over 30 years’ experience leading businesses in the financial services industry across sales, operations, service, superannuation, investments, insurance and wrap platforms.

I am passionate about putting people, customers and purpose at the heart of commercial decision making, and I believe in the power of communication, engagement and a unifying purpose to achieve amazing outcomes in the businesses I lead. Fostering a culture of innovation is also a key focus of mine.

Another passion of mine is developing people and I have dedicated significant time to mentoring and coaching talented leaders. I wrote my MBA thesis on employee engagement, and understand deeply what it takes to engage the hearts and minds of my people.

I believe we should never stop learning, both through formal education and in the various roles we hold in our careers.  I hold a Bachelor of Business, an MBA, and am a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

In my role at Praemium, Chief Operating Officer Australia, I am responsible for leading the functions of Sales, Implementations, Client Service, Administration, Investment Operations, Tax and Corporate Actions.
