Qantas Super has hired First State Super risk and compliance executive Suzette Thurman in the newly created role of chief risk officer.
Ms Thurman will be commencing in the role from December, reporting directly to Qantas Super chief executive Michael Clancy.
Mr Clancy said Ms Thurman’s appointment reinforced the company’s continued focus on risk and compliance and follows the implementation of its new three lines of defence risk governance model.
“At Qantas Super exemplary governance is at the foundation of our business strategy. This regulates everything we do, including how objectives are set and achieved, how risks are assessed, how compliance is monitored and how member outcomes are delivered,” he said.
“Suzette is a highly talented and accomplished risk executive, evidenced by her 25-year track record of building and implementing robust risk frameworks in the financial services sector.”
