Industry fund Statewide Super has appointed a new chief executive following a national and international search.
Richard Nunn will commence as the chief executive of Statewide Super on 4 January 2016 after completing his role as general manager of strategic development, Asia, at NAB.
Statewide Super chairman Juliet Brown said: “Across an extremely strong field of candidates Richard’s passion for members, commitment to customer service and strategic leadership experience made him the obvious choice for us.”
“As a South Australian returning home Richard brings a local’s understanding of our members, employers and other stakeholders that gives us the confidence that the CEO transition process will be smooth.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Nunn said: “I’ve spent much of my career competing against the structural and reputational advantages provided by industry funds like Statewide, and it will be a genuine pleasure to be able to focus on leveraging the organisation’s significant strengths in the marketplace.”
“It is an enormous responsibility to manage the retirement funds of members and I look forward to working with the Statewide team to deliver the best possible retirement outcomes.”
In addition to NAB, Mr Nunn has held previous positions with AXA, IOOF and CBA.
