Announcing Nunn’s appointment, MetLife Australia chairman, Geoff Brunsdon noted the firm’s recent expansion into the retail market and its recent win with respect to Tasplan.

Nunn will be taking up his position in May with Vince Watt, MetLife Australia’s Chief Financial Officer, continuing as Acting CEO.
