Michael Harrison Departs Synchron


The new owners of Synchron have thanked its retiring Chair, Michael Harrison, for his “…enormous contribution to the financial services industry and to Synchron.”

Managing Director of WT Financial Group, Keith Cullen noted Harrison has a history with Synchron dating back to 2007 and was its Chair from 2011 until the acquisition by WT Financial Group in March (see: Synchron Sold):

“Over that time, the advice and counsel he provided clearly helped the directors grow the business into the vibrant, progressive group it is today,” said Cullen, adding that Harrison joined Synchron at a pivotal time in its history, helping reinvent the company to become more attractive to younger advisers, while also remaining a preferred licensee for its traditional adviser base.

Harrison’s career spanned accountancy, retail sales, insurance, and banking. Among other major organisations, he consulted to Zurich Financial Services where he was charged with the responsibility of reinventing Zurichʼs Australian life insurance business.

Harrison is also the author of three books and a corporate speaker, served three terms as Deputy Lord Mayor of Adelaide, and sat on numerous government and private company boards.

Synchron Director, Don Trapnell, succeeded Harrison as Chair.
