Industry fund Sunsuper has appointed the former chair of ASIC’s consumer advisory panel as its board director.*
Sunsuper has appointed Jenni Mack to the position of director of the board following an external recruitment process.
Prior to her appointment, Ms Mack was chair of consumer advocacy group Choice and has also held directorships with the Financial Ombudsman and the Financial Industry Complaints Service.
Most recently, Ms Mack stepped down as the chair of ASIC’s Consumer Advisory Panel and has served on numerous other boards, government working parties and ministerial advisory committees.
Sunsuper chief executive Scott Hartley said Ms Mack’s appointment was a “major coup” for the fund and will benefit its members.
“Ms Mack’s influence in financial services and, in particular her deep understanding of consumer policy and advocacy needs, and public policy, as well as her extensive experience in leading digital transformation of business models, will perfectly complement our current board make up,” said Mr Hartley.
“With Ms Mack’s appointment the board is perfectly positioned to support Sunsuper’s significant and growing scale, the organisation’s scope as a full-service super and retirement business for customers, as well as our ambitious strategic goals,” he said.
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Mack said: “I am looking forward to the opportunity of working with the Sunsuper board and management team to help take the organisation through the next stage of its evolution in a way that will ultimately benefit its members and as many Australians as possible.”
