Spirit Super has announced that a long-term board member will leave the super fund at the end of the financial year.

After nearly 12 years as a director, Sue Dahn will finish her term with Spirit Super on 30 June 2023.

Spirit chair Maria Wilton said: “Sue has made an outstanding contribution to Spirit Super, having served initially on the MTAA Super Board and supporting it through the merger with Tasplan.

“Her strategic and financial acumen has made her a valued contributor around the board table and wise counsel to me as chair and to the CEOs, and executives of the fund.

“Sue is a passionate advocate of our members. She has made her biggest impact as the chair of our investment committee. Her skills as a financial adviser, and experience on boards, as well as in private practice, has helped Spirit Super achieve strong results over a long period of time.”

Ms Dahn has more than three decades of experience in the financial and investment sector, currently a partner at advisory firm Pitcher Partners.

She has also served on the boards of a number of companies, including super funds ESSSuper and MTAA Super, as well as AIA Australia and not for profits.

“Being a director of Spirit Super has been a professional privilege and a personal pleasure,” Ms Dahn said.

“This fund has great ambitions to deliver exceptional member experience and outcomes, and I’ve been proud to be a part of driving it to use its size to its advantage. The investments the fund has made in infrastructure and the regions reflect a values approach.

“From $6 billion when I joined to now $25 billion in funds under management, the largest fund covering Tasmanians and the motor trades with a national reach, being a part of this fund has been an honour and a privilege.”
