Australian Retirement Trust, Brisbane, has overhauled its leadership structure, which includes a new chief strategy officer, a newly created chief retirement officer role and a soon-to-be vacated chief member officer role, the fund said in a news release on Thursday.
The A$240 billion ($166 billion) fund appointed Stevhan Davidson as its new chief strategy officer as of Wednesday. He replaces Teifi Whatley who will retire at the end of the month after two decades with Sunsuper, Brisbane, which merged with QSuper, Brisbane last year to form ART.
Mr. Davidson was previously the executive general manager for customer engagement at Sunsuper and was with the fund for 12 years before the merger.
Meanwhile, Chief Member Officer Karin Muller will leave the fund at the end of the month to pursue opportunities outside of the firm, the statement said. Ms. Muller was previously chief operating officer at QSuper from 2019 until the merger, and chief of information and technology at the fund from 2015 to 2019.
The fund also created a new role for the chief of retirement, who will provide leadership on ART's retirement strategy and offerings, which includes products, investments, service models and advice.
Recruitment for the two vacant roles of chief of retirement and chief member officer is underway, the release said.
