HESTA chief executive, Debby Blakey will succeed Ian Silk as the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI) president next month when Silk’s term ends.
Speaking at the ACSI annual conference today, Silk said Blakey had been a strong advocate of the importance of focusing on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.
“[Blakey] will be an excellent President supporting the ACSI team on delivering outcomes in the best financial interests of millions of super fund members,” he said.
Silk also announced that ACSI’s deputy president Antony Thow’s term would also expire and would be replaced by Caresuper trustee director, Michelle Gardiner.
“I want to recognise Louise Davidson who has done a magnificent job as CEO of ACSI. It has been a privilege to work alongside her and observe her leadership and the great contribution she has made to the investment industry in Australia,” he said.
