The new appointment will join the super fund later this year.
Cbus Super has announced the appointment of Antony Thow as group executive brand, growth and product.
Mr Thow has previously worked as the deputy CEO and COO at LUCRF Super since 2010 where he led the fund’s strategic thinking, planning and execution.
He also was a trustee director for the fund from 2005 to 2010.
Mr Thow has held board and member council roles on the Australian Council of Super Investors (ACSI) and served as vice president for four years.
“I’m delighted someone with Antony’s experience and credentials will be joining the Fund, Antony having held roles in industry super for 17 years,” Cbus CEO Justin Arter said.
“Antony will continue to strengthen and grow the strong Cbus brand, whilst aligning with our growth strategy, and focus on innovative products and the retirement phase for our members.
“The importance of growth to Cbus is reflected in Antony’s title and will be a key focus for him. Cbus has positioned ourselves strongly for the next phase of growth with our strategy to grow to $150 billion. Having the right team in place is essential for the journey of the Fund and to maximise opportunities to deliver for our members.”
Mr Thow will join Cbus in mid-July.
“I’m excited to be joining Cbus and am looking forward to working with Cbus’ members, unions, employers, staff and trustees,” he said.
“Cbus is one of the most successful industry funds, and I will continue to build its trusted, strong brand at a time that the Fund is enacting its growth strategy.
“I’m looking forward to continuing the delivery of scale benefits to members, to enacting the retirement income strategy and continuing innovation of product offerings.”
