Elizabeth Thomas has been named as acting chief executive following the resignation of Megan Bolton, who served in the position for seven years.
Frank Gullone, Kinetic Super board chairman, said Ms Thomas brings a combination of leadership and expertise to the role.
“Ms Thomas’ extensive background in superannuation and executive leadership is particularly impressive,” Mr Gullone said.
“She has a proven background achieving strategic success for organisations, particularly in superannuation and financial services.”
Ms Thomas joins the fund from her role as a senior executive at Superpartners, where she was responsible for the company’s strategic program.
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Thomas said: “I’m very proud to join such a dynamic, high-performing fund. We’ll continue our drive to deliver innovative services and strong investment returns to our members.”
Ms Thomas’ first priority will be to recruit a permanent chief executive.
