Industry fund Kinetic Super has appointed an acting chief executive following the departure of Megan Bolton.
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.
