Queensland-based local government super fund LGIAsuper has appointed Greg Hallam as director.
Hallam served 26 years as chief executive at the Local Government Association of Queensland and was awarded as a Member of the Order of Australia in 2018.
He also had experience in senior executive positions at the Federal Treasury, the National Office of Local Government, Esk Shire and Townsville City councils, and was director of Queensland Treasury Corporation.
John Smith, LGIAsuper chair, said Hallam understood local government better than anyone else in Queensland and that members would benefit from his extensive and varied experience.
“His proven commitment to Queenslanders and his result-driven approach mean that he is a natural cultural fit for us, as our purpose and values are similarly member-driven, and results focused,” Smith said.
“I am confident that he is the right person to help lead the fund as we continue to protect and grow our members’ investments as we weather the market volatility caused by COVID-19.”
Smith thanked outgoing director Matthew Bourke, noting that his commitment to members had helped see LGIAsuper consistently awarded a Platinum rating by SuperRatings for the MyChoice super category.
“Matthew has played an integral role in our fund since 2016, as an employee director, member of the audit and risk management committee, and member of the investment committee,” Smith said.
“It has been an honour to serve alongside him. The board and I wish him continued success.”
