UniSuper has appointed Julie Watkins as executive manager, people services, effective July this year, where she would continue to drive the fund’s strong member and employer-focussed culture.
Watkins would bring over 25 years’ experience to the role, having previously led human resources functions at HESTA as well as AIA, where she was the chief human resources officer for five years.
UniSuper chief executive officer, Kevin O’Sullivan, said Watkin’s appointment would be crucial in continuing to ensure the super fund’s workplace thrives.
“We’re proud of our culture at UniSuper so it was important for us to bring in a leader who was personally aligned to our ‘genuine care for members’ philosophy,” he said.
“Julie’s experience and approach will help us to retain and further strengthen the culture.”
