InterRISK has hired former Centric Wealth CEO and Wallabies rugby union captain Phil Kearns as MD.

He will join the company on April 20.

InterRISK shareholders sold 77.1% of the business to Austbrokers in June 2013, when MD Dennis Guy also became chairman of the company, a role in which he will continue.

Mr Kearns joined Centric Wealth in 2011, having been appointed by its private equity owner to manage the business’ turnaround in preparation for its sale.

He left last May after Financial Index Wealth Accountants Australia acquired Centric for $130 million.

Austbrokers CEO and MD Mark Searles says Mr Kearns brings great experience and additional networks to the foundations built by Mr Guy and his team.
