LGIAsuper has appointed an experienced investment manager and company chair, Ronald Dewhurst, to its board as an independent director.
Dewhurst currently chaired a number of listed and unlisted companies, including OneVue Holdings and Rhinomed Limited.
He had also previously held leadership positions in investment management firms globally, with notable roles being Legg Mason’s head of global investment managers and IOOF chief executive.
LGIAsuper chair, John Smith, welcomed the addition of Dewhurst’s global experience to the board.
“A cornerstone of our investment strategy is to seek out innovative, long-life assets across the globe,” Smith said.
“Mr Dewhurst’s experience in global investment banking and asset management will strengthen the board’s ability to generate strong returns for our members, while managing risk appropriately.”
Dewhurst would take up the directorship left empty by John Wilson’s resignation earlier this year.
