Ms Einhart most recently served as company secretary at Maurice Blackburn and has over 10 years of experience in a range of ASX-listed companies including UXC Limited and REA Group.
“Samantha brings excellent experience to apply to the role in a trustee company,” said Equity Trustees managing director Mick O’Brien.

Equity Trustees thanked Mr Gentry for his contribution as company secretary and said it looked forward to him continuing as CFO and COO moving forward.
In the previous financial year, Equity Trustees reported a jump in funds under management, administration, advice and supervision to $144.2 billion, up 43 per cent compared to a year earlier.
