Hostplus, the national superannuation fund for hospitality, tourism, recreation and sports industries, has announced the appointment of Alexandra Grayson to the role of independent director to its board of trustee directors.
Ms Grayson, an industrial relations lawyer with 15 years of experience in both state and federal relations systems, will be taking over from Bob Hinkley, who stepped down from his position on the board at the end of June.
Hostplus chair David Elmslie said he was delighted to welcome Ms Grayson to the Hostplus board.
“Hostplus is privileged to have a great balance of skills, expertise and industry diversity on our trustee board, and Ms Grayson will bring significant legal, industrial relations and governance experience,” said Mr Elmslie.
“We are looking forward to working with her and I am confident our members will be the ultimate beneficiaries,” he said.
According to Hostplus, Ms Grayson has won numerous high-profile industrial cases and has dedicated her career to social justice and advocating on behalf of workers.
Mr Elmslie also recognised the contribution of Mr Hinkley, and was pleased that Mr Hinkley would continue as a member of the Hostplus claims review committee.
“A director since 2005, Mr Hinkley demonstrated a relentless and exemplary focus on ensuring our members’ best interests were always paramount to each decision we considered as a board,” he said.
“With these characteristics, it was no coincidence or surprise that he fulfilled his role as a member of the Hostplus claims review committee with remarkable leadership and devotion.”
