Super fund Rest has strengthened its strategic technology and digital innovation capabilities with its latest group executive appointment.
Jeremy Hubbard has been appointed as group executive, innovation and transformation and will be responsible for executing the business strategy and planning the funds’ innovation.
Mr Hubbard has previously worked at UBank where he was general manager of digital and innovation after stints as head of digital and head of transformation deployment.
In his over two decades’ experience, Mr Hubbard has worked as head of IT for a fintech startup and worked as NAB’s program director of core banking.
Rest’s chief executive Vicki Doyle said that innovation was crucial to the business and Mr Hubbard’s role as a key part of that.
“Digital technology and innovation is crucial to how Rest connects with members and employers in ways that matter, and one of our key priorities is to accelerate in these areas and build on our existing digital customer experience offering.
“The innovation and transformation team will provide strategic planning and oversight for our whole organisation, helping all our teams work together to deliver a seamless and consistent experience for members and employers.
“Jeremy has valuable leadership experience in delivering business strategy via technology and innovation, and this will be a real asset for Rest as we build for the future,” she said.
