Mr Dundon will formally join the fund in March of next year.

Michael Dundon will be replacing Julie Lander as CareSuper’s new CEO after Ms Lander announced earlier this year that she planned to step down after 20 years in the role.

Commenting on Ms Lander’s time as CEO, CareSuper chair Linda Scott said: “Julie has been a tremendous leader of CareSuper for over two decades, having overseen significant growth in the fund over that time. She embodies our values and our commitment to members and has made a substantial contribution to the superannuation sector more broadly”.

“We are truly grateful to have had such a remarkable and inspiring leader and we look forward to recognising her enormous contribution to CareSuper over the coming months,” she concluded.

Ms Lander will remain in the role until the handover in March 2023.

Mr Dundon joins the fund from Aware Super, where he worked as an executive consultant. Previously, he was CEO of VicSuper for nine years prior to its merger with Aware, and before that, he was CEO of ESSSuper.

Ms Scott said the board had undertaken an extensive search and that it was a pleasure to welcome Mr Dundon to lead the fund into its next phase.

“CareSuper welcomes Michael at an exciting time for our award-winning fund. As a proven superannuation leader, our members will benefit from his work to continue to grow CareSuper to be Australia’s leading challenger fund to the mega-funds, offering Australians a diversity of fund sizes in the national interest,” she concluded.
