SuperFriend has appointed the chief executive of Rest to its board of directors as a fund representative director.
Vicki Doyle has previously served as an independent director on the board of SuperFriend but in the new position will be responsible for creating an ongoing healthy environment that helps employees and members.
SuperFriend chief executive Margo Lydon welcomed the current Rest chief executive who Ms Lydon said had shown a commitment to her employees in all of her roles.
“We warmly welcome Vicki to her new role on the Board. Her commitment to the mental health of her own employees and Rest’s members shows that she will not only bring business strategy and corporate governance expertise to SuperFriend, but also the qualities of a great champion for a mentally healthy, thriving workforce.”
Many of Rest employees have undergone SuperFriend’s mental health and wellbeing training, including training that helps employees to support members that are going through a difficult period.
Ms Doyle said the training was invaluable in helping employees look after themselves and others’ mental health. It was part of her decision to take on this role.
“At Rest, we have a strong ethos of caring for our people and our members at work and in the community. We proudly promote improving mental health and wellbeing in Australia and play an active role in supporting organisations such as SuperFriend.
“I am delighted to be a member on the SuperFriend Board. All of us are responsible for creating happier tomorrows for our members, our people and our fund. Our collaboration with SuperFriend will help us in providing an environment that helps our employees and members achieve their personal best” she said.
SuperFriend chair David Atkin welcomed Ms Doyle to the team and said he looked forward to working with her.
“Vicki’s extensive leadership experience and a track record in superannuation advocacy speaks for itself. She has more than two decades of experience in the financial services industry, across superannuation, banking and wealth management which will be of immense value to SuperFriend and its board,” he said.
