The Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST) has appointed Angela Emslie to succeed Cate Wood as its new president.
Emslie has been a director of AIST since 2007 and is currently chair of HESTA and a director of Frontier Advisors.
Whilst a director on the AIST board Emslie took an active role developing AIST policies — particularly its fund governance guidelines — and represented AIST on the Stronger Super Governance Working Group, the announcement said.
"Angela has enormous experience in the not-for-profit superannuation sector. She is a prominent thought leader in the industry and a passionate advocate for the equal representation model and delivering the best outcomes for members," said AIST CEO Tom Garcia.
Wood, who is the current chair of Care Super, served as AIST president for the two-year term and will remain on the AIST board as deputy president.
Media Super chair Gerard Noonan will step down as deputy president but he will remain on the board and as chair of the AIST policy and governance committee.
