John Dixon has taken a seat on the Frontier Advisors board as the new representative of its part-owner AustralianSuper.
Mr Dixon has replaced previous AustralianSuper delegate Lucio Di Bartolomeo.
The Frontier board has one representative from each of its four owners, along with two independent directors, including chair Gabriel Szondy.
Mr Di Bartolomeo has sat on the board since 2015. The decision to step down has followed his recent appointment to the position of chair of Australia Post.
Mr Szondy commented: “Lucio has been a terrific contributor to Frontier over the last four and a half years in a time of sustained success and growth for the firm. His strategic capability and commercial acumen were invaluable.
“We look forward to John bringing his extensive 35 years of commercial, senior executive and governance experience to the Frontier board. His background complements and strengthens the range of skills already held within our board and I look forward to working with him as we lead the firm into a further phase of development and growth.”
Mr Dixon has been with the AustralianSuper board since September, as an employer director.
He is a fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and a non-executive director of AiGroup.
His previous roles include being an executive director and chief operating officer with Linfox, executive director and COO of Skilled Engineering, managing director of Westgate Logistics and managing director of Silk Logistics Group.
