Midwinter appoints Fraser Hamilton as Chief Technology Officer

Midwinter Financial Services has today announced the appointment of Fraser Hamilton as its new Chief Technology Officer.

Hamilton joins Midwinter from start-up life insurer Integrity Life where, as Head of Development, he was focused on creating a technology ecosystem that would make life insurance more accessible. Prior to this, Hamilton held solution architecture roles in AMP and Westfarmers Insurance.

“Technology, when designed and implemented right, can be an important differentiator for an advice business,” Fraser Hamilton said.

“I am excited to join the Midwinter team to build on the great work they have already done and help take our advice solutions to the next level. Technology advances way quicker than the financial services industry can; my role will be to look for opportunities to harness new technologies in a way that helps advisers better engage their clients and reduces their cost to serve, helping them achieve the outcomes they want in their business.”

Steve Davison, Chief Commercial Officer at Midwinter said he is pleased to have Hamilton on the team, saying, “Fraser brings a wealth of technology knowledge and experience to Midwinter.”

“This extensive experience, combined with his innovative thinking, will help Midwinter stay at the forefront of advice technology, so we can help our customers harness the power of technology in their business.”

This appointment will allow one of Midwinter’s original Founders, Andrew McClelland, to step back from day to day activities and free up his time to focus on strategic initiatives.
