Local Government Super (LGS) has appointed Gordon Brock to its board of directors, replacing Martin O'Connell who resigned after 17 years of service.
Brock has over 20 years of experience in business and is currently a director at the Local Government Engineers' Association (LGEA) where he plays a key role in determining the strategic objectives of the LGEA at the national and divisional levels.
LGS chief executive, Peter Lambert, said: "He has a wealth of workplace relations experience which we know will be of immense value to LGS".
"But these aren't his only skills. He also brings excellent managerial and financial skills to the role and these will also be of great benefit to our members," he said.
On O'Connell, Lambert said he had been on the board since October 1999 and had worked tirelessly to support LGS and its members.
"His contribution has been invaluable, particularly in recent years as the chair of the board's investment committee. We certainly wish him all the best in his future endeavours," Lambert said.
