NAB has announced Matthew Lawrance will take over as the new chief executive of MLC Super.
Mr Lawrance has been acting in the role of NAB’s chief technology and operations officer for the past seven months, the bank said in a statement.
In addition, he will also represent NAB on the Financial Services Council.
“Matt’s role will be to continue to elevate MLC Super in the Australian marketplace and to advocate for our customers and their retirement,” NAB chief executive Andrew Thorburn said.
“I am pleased to appoint Matt to this role and know that his customer focus and deep experience leading complex businesses set him up well to lead MLC Super.”
Mr Lawrance said he was optimistic about the future of MLC Super in helping Australians plan for retirement.
“We know that too many Australians don’t understand their super and don’t feel confident that they can reach their financial goals,” he said.
“I believe that the role of Australia’s largest retail super fund goes beyond just managing investments for Australians. We also have an important role to help customers to get the right help, guidance and advice so they can plan and reach their financial goals.”
