Cbus has appointed a head of retirement and head of product governance to the fund.
Jon Sedawie was promoted from his role of head of product to become head of retirement while Craig Plain was appointed head of product governance.
Plain would join Cbus from Equipsuper where he was head of product and had worked for 15 years and would join Cbus in mid-May.
Cbus said the head of retirement role was created to build a greater focus on the fund’s retirement offering and Sedawie would have a wide range of responsibilities including product development, member experience and retirement modelling.
Meanwhile, Plain would be responsible for the end-to-end process and controls used to design, launch and monitor products. It would also be responsible for product governance framework including rigorous policies, processes and systems to ensure alignment across a product’s lifecycle.
Justin Arter, chief executive, said the appointments would prepare the fund for future growth opportunities.
“Cbus is very excited about the creation of these two new roles which represent an important milestone in the execution of two key elements of our strategy – readying ourselves for our inorganic growth opportunities and further enhancements to our already leading retirement offerings to members.
“Both Jon and Craig have significant experience in developing and delivering products that are fit for purpose at all stages of members’ experience with Cbus. Our commitment to these two roles managing this critical area of member experience, will ensure Cbus continues to deliver the right products at the right time for all members.”
