The chief executive of an Aboriginal health clinic and Aboriginal elder has been appointed to the board of First Super as an independent director.
Budja Budja Aboriginal Cooperative chief executive, Djab Wurrung elder and Indigenous community leader Tim Chatfield holds experience on the board of a number of other bodie, serving as chairman of Aboriginal Housing Victoria and Martang Pty Ltd, and as a member of the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council and the Aboriginal Stakeholder Group.
Commenting on the appointment, First Super chief executive Bill Watson said, “Tim Chatfield is an inspiring community leader who contributes across an extraordinary number of public policy areas.
“The sheer number of successful organisations he has started and nurtured points to his initiative and problem-solving capacity.”
Given that First Super had many members that lived or worked in regional and rural Victoria, Mr Chatfield’s “highly relevant perspectives and diversity” was welcomed, Mr Watson said.
“Tim’s appointment brings an outlook outside of our own industry broadening the skills and experience of our board,” he said.
“It continues First Super’s board renewal program with half of its directors being appointed in the last four years.”
