Former QSuper group strategy manager Michael Abbott has been selected for the newly created general manager of strategy role.
Mr Abbott’s career in financial services has seen him hold senior roles with Commonwealth Bank and Zurich, and has over 25 years of experience in the industry.
In this new position, Mr Abbott will be responsilble for developing Energy Super’s financial growth strategy; building the member base and shaping future investment choices.
His appointment is part of a restructure that saw the introduction of three new general manager roles, which Energy Super chief executive Robyn Petrou said were created to help grow several areas of the fund.
“Energy Super’s priority is, and always will be, to protect our members’ best interests, and these new managerial roles will further streamline our existing operations,” Ms Petrou said.
The other roles – both also general manager positions – will address areas such as productivity and process improvement, employee engagement, and digital service delivery.
Phil McCarthy and David McBeal will take on the roles of general manager of member engagement and development, and general manager of digital transformation and analytics respectively.
“With almost 70 years’ combined experience across the energy, finance and government sectors, Michael, Phil and David bring substantial expertise in member service delivery and communication, technology, and strategic growth,” Ms Petrou said.
