Media Super’s deputy CEO and general manager of operations is leaving the industry fund after 16 years, with a new chief operations officer to soon start.
Michael Rooney, deputy CEO and general manager of operations, has resigned, while the new COO, Tony Griffin, will be commencing in his role from 3 April, having previously been COO at Local Government Super for eight years.
Mr Rooney’s tenure with Media Super includes five years with its predecessor, Print Super.
The fund said he was “instrumental during the merger of JUST and Print Super in 2008 and has helped steer the fund through significant regulatory and internal change.”
Mr Griffin has held various roles responsible for managing operations, administration, audit and risk management and compliance functions at industry super funds, Media Super said.
