14 August 2008 Metropolitan

Metropolitan is pleased to announce the appointment of John Melville (pictured) as chief executive of the corporate business cluster, effective 1 August 2008.

John Melville B Bus Sc (Hons) started his career as an actuarial student, progressing rapidly through his professional exams and qualifying as an actuary in 1992. He joined Metropolitan Employee Benefits in 1994 as one of the founding senior leaders. He was instrumental in building the business from infancy to its current status as a market-leading player in the retirement funds industry.

A senior actuary within the group, John is currently head of the retirement fund administration initiatives, including Metropolitan Retirement Administrators. During the last 13 years with the group, he has fulfilled many leading roles in the development of Employee Benefits.

John made an important contribution in developing the business from the start-up phase to its status today as a competitive and formidable player in the industry. He is certainly well recognised by the market as an expert and leader in the field of retirement fund matters and it is thus particularly satisfying that we can make this level of appointment from withinthe Metropolitanbusiness.

This business will also be exposed to the strategic shifts introduced by the current social security reform proposals and John’s knowledge of the market andMetropolitans position within it will be of great benefit to the group.
