National workplace wellbeing organisation SuperFriend has appointed a former ANZ banker as its new chair, replacing former Cbus chief David Atkin.
Elizabeth Proust brings more than 30 years’ experience in leadership roles across the public and private sectors, with an “outstanding record” of change management programs in large and diverse organisations.
“We are excited to welcome Elizabeth as our new chairperson, she has a rich history of work in charitable, university and business boards, giving her a unique perspective on SuperFriend’s policies and initiatives to improve mental health in Australian workplaces,” said SuperFriend chief executive Margo Lydon.
“With such a vast industry experience, Elizabeth has established herself a dynamic leader with strong strategic skills who has a successful track record for change management programs in diverse organisations.”
Ms Proust worked spent four years as managing director of Esanda, ANZ’s asset finance company, was a member of the ANZ management board, and “ANZ’s most senior woman”. She will take over the position from Cbus chief David Atkin who served as chairman for more than three years.
“SuperFriend and Cbus will continue to have a close relationship and we thank David for his outstanding contribution to our continued growth and success. We wish David the very best in his next career step and look forward to seeing what he does next,” Ms Lydon said.
