Trustee company Gardior has named its newest board member as the firm looks to grow its infrastructure portfolio.
Ian Gillings, a representative of the Australian Catholic Superannuation & Retirement Fund (ACSRF) will take the place of ACSRF chief executive Greg Cantor, who recently resigned from the board.
Mr Gillings has over 30 years of experience in infrastructure finance, having previously worked as an investment banker in projects within Australia, Asia, the Middle East and the US.
Gardior chairman Bob Lette said Mr Gillings’ experience both here and abroad would help position Gardior for “further growth”.
“Ian’s appointment comes at a time where the board continues to concentrate on creating a diversified portfolio,” he said.
“As a part of this, we are continually evaluating new infrastructure investment opportunities, both here in Australia and overseas.”
Mr Gillings has also worked as an infrastructure adviser for the Australian government, and has advised and executed several state government asset sales.
