First Super has added former Victorian government minister Candy Broad as an independent director to its board.
Broad becomes the twelfth director, the second independent director, and the fourth woman on the board. Currently, she is the director of Women's Health Victoria and director of Hepburn Community Wind Farm.
"As a former government minister for seven years, and with 15 years' experience in Parliament, Candy will add a new dimension to the skills, experience, and prestige of our board," First Super chief executive, Bill Watson, said.
"I have no doubt Candy's interest in improving the lives of working people will translate very well to the governance of an industry super fund, and strongly benefit our members."
Broad's ministerial portfolios include housing, local government, energy and resources, and ports.
