Synchron has appointed Emma Crothers as SA/NT State Manager. Based in Adelaide, Mrs Crothers most recently ran her own consultancy, Fusion Practice Solutions, which provided project management and administration support services to financial planning businesses.
Announcing the appointment at a bringing together of Synchron advisers in Adelaide last week, Synchron Director Don Trapnell said, “Emma’s long experience working with financial advisers and the fact that she is a Synchron NextGen graduate, means she has an excellent understanding of the challenges and ambitions of Synchron advisers. We are looking forward to working with her as she continues to grow and develop our adviser force in South Australia and the Northern Territory.”
Mrs Crothers started her financial services career in 2004 with the Bank of South Australia, before moving on to a financial planning assistant role, followed by a financial planning practice support role, with Professional Investment Services. She then worked in client development management with AIA for more than five years before launching her own consultancy. She has received multiple employer awards and was a finalist in Money Management’s 2018 BDM of the Year awards. 
“I am super excited to be joining the Synchron team and begin working with the SA/NT advisers,” she said.
Mrs Crothers’ appointment follows the tragic passing of Synchron’s well-respected former NT/SA State Manager, Chris Regenass. In extending his sympathy to the Regenass family at that time, Mr Trapnell said Synchron had lost one of its own, a member of the Synchron family, who would be profoundly missed.
