Kevin Wan Lum joined Brisbane-based Energy Super as the A$7.8 billion ($5.4 billion) fund's chief investment officer.
Mr. Lum is the fund's first executive to hold that title. He effectively replaces Bill Graus, who served as Energy Super's general manager investments.
Mr. Graus left in February to pursue other opportunities. He couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
In a news release, Energy Super said Mr. Lum most recently served as head of real assets and alternatives and senior portfolio manager at A$22 billion VicSuper. In April, VicSuper announced that it had entered into merger discussions with A$91 billion First State Super.
