The A$80 billion ($53.9 billion) Cbus Super, Melbourne, officially made chief investment officer Kristian Fok its CEO, and chief member officer Marianne Walker its deputy CEO, the fund said in a statement on Tuesday.
In March, the fund announced that former CEO Justin Arter would retire in May and Mr. Fok would serve as interim CEO.
Mr. Fok was CIO at Cbus for 10 years and was an asset consultant for the fund for a decade before that. As CIO, he led the fund's investment strategy and drove the implementation of Cbus' hybrid internalization strategy that brought the management of 38% of its assets in-house.
Deputy CIO Brett Chatfield will take on the responsibilities of acting CIO, a spokesman said.
Ms. Walker has been chief member officer at the fund since 2019 when she joined from the Victoria state's Department of Health and Human Services where she was the executive director of customer support. She remains as chief member officer while serving as deputy CEO, a spokeswoman confirmed.
