Queensland-based LGIAsuper has announced the appointment of Kate Farrar as its new chief executive, the fund said.
She would replace in this role David Todd who would continue as the company’s chief investment officer, a position he held since 2006.
Farrar, who has 25 years of experience in senior leadership roles to the fund, joined from McKinsey & Company where she served as an implementation leader.
The fund’s chair, John Smith, said that this appointment followed an extensive executive search.
“Kate joins us at an exciting time in our fund’s history,” he said.
“With Kate leading the next stage of our growth, we expect to see a continued focus on innovation, while maintaining our commitment to improving the lives of our members in retirement.”
