Ross Piper has been named the new chief executive of Christian Super, more than five months after the $1.2 billion fund announced the abrupt resignation of former boss Peter Murphy.
In April, a spokesperson told InvestorDaily that a replacement for Mr Murphy was expected to be in place by "July or August".
Mr Piper makes the move to Christian Super from World Vision Australia, where he was chief operating officer.
Prior to his role at a World Vision Australia, Mr Piper was head of corporate risk at Macquarie Group and senior director of operations for the Middle East and Eastern Europe at World Vision International.
Christian Super chair Neville Cox said Mr Piper would be "invaluable" to the fund as it continued to grow.
"It is with great pleasure that the board looks forward to his leadership as Christian Super continues to pursue its vision," Mr Cox said.
For his part, Mr Piper said, "Christian Super has a long track record of operating with clear purpose and intentional impact within the superannuation space.
"I’m looking forward to joining the team and leading Christian Super as it continues to grow strategically, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to join an organisation demonstrating purpose and impact in its industry."
