Industry super fund Rest has announced a leadership shake-up following the retirement of a key finance executive.
Amy Murrell will take on the role of general manager for people and culture following the retirement of group executive for people, finance and change Trevor Evans and the separation of the functions within his remit. She will report to Jeremy Hubbard, group executive for innovation and transformation.
“Trevor’s retirement has provided an opportunity to refine our structure as we continue to build internal capabilities,” said Rest chief Vicki Doyle.
“Amy has demonstrated expertise as well as extensive experience in the superannuation and financial services industry. A senior leader of her calibre will further deepen the capability in this critical function.”
Ms Murrell spent a decade at AMP Group, including as head of people services and governance and the head of people and culture projects. She was most recently general manager for people and culture at Resolution Life Australasia.
A new chief financial officer will be appointed to lead the finance group, with an announcement coming “in the near future”.
“Trevor has been a much-valued part of the Rest team since he joined in 2014 and has been instrumental in recent years as we aligned the fund to a new strategic direction, continued to build internal capability and established new cultural values,” Ms Doyle said.
“His expertise was invaluable in 2020 as we dealt with the challenges of working remotely during a pandemic, with health and wellbeing a priority. We wish Trevor the very best in retirement and thank him for his contribution to Rest.”
