The $60-billion industry fund has elevated its people and culture function to the executive level with a new appointment.
Kristin Miller will join Cbus in the new role of group executive for people and culture. Ms Miller has more than 20 years’ experience in financial services in both Australia and Asia and will play a “key role” as the fund continues to grow.
“Kristin will bring to our executive extensive international and local experience in people and culture roles where she has successfully led teams to deliver cultural and operational transformation,” said chief executive Justin Arter.
“As Cbus continues its transformation process of building greater direct control of our investment activities and of our member and employer advice and services, Kristin will lead the positioning of our people at Cbus for the continuation of that transformation.”
Ms Miller has previously held a number of roles at BlackRock, including head of human resources for investments, risk and product management in Asia, and head of talent management for APAC. Prior to BlackRock she was regional director of human resources at AllianceBernstein and has also served as vice-president for human resources at Morgan Stanley.
“I’m delighted to be joining the Cbus Executive team in this important role at such a critical time of growth for the fund and for industry super funds in general. I believe that with Cbus’ strong member focused culture and depth of talent, we are well positioned to take advantage of the many opportunities ahead of us,” Ms Miller said.
