Superannuation fund executive professional body, the Fund Executives Association Ltd (FEAL), has appointed Laura Wright to the board of directors, while Jane Perry has been reappointed as chair for a further two-year term.
Perry said Wright was approached to join the board due to her extensive experience and track record of more than three decades in the super space.
“She was a founding trustee director of NGS Super and has held client services and operational roles at three different administrators working closely with a number of funds,” Perry said.
“This depth of experience will see her make a valuable contribution to FEAL and to our professional development and education initiatives.”
The next term would be Perry’s final as chair and she said it was her goal to support members during this period of uncertain change due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Graeme Arnott had stepped down following his resignation from First State Super but would join the FEAL Programme Committee.
Perry said Arnott had been an active and passionate contributor to FEAL.
“He has a deep understanding of the superannuation and retirement sector, and I’m pleased to welcome him to his new role with the FEAL Programme Committee,” Perry said.
“Through the committee, Graeme will continue to make a contribution to our members’ professional development.”
