Industry superannuation fund Mine Wealth + Wellbeing has appointed its chief governance and risk officer, Nicole Killen, as its interim chief executive.
Current CEO, Bruce Watson, who will leave on 12 February, announced his departure last September as he wanted to look for new opportunities. Watson has been with the fund for 23 years.
Commenting, board chair, Grahame Kelly, said the board was continuing a search for a replacement and was considering internal and external candidates.
"Nicole has already worked tirelessly for the fund for over eight years, overseeing the development and implementation of a world class governance and risk structure," Kelly said.
"Nicole brings a wealth of experience to the role, including her experience as former general manager of accountants super.
"The board and I believe the appointment of ‘best fit' CEO who is aligned to the fund's culture, has a commitment to building ongoing member benefits and can assist in positioning the fund to achieve its strategic objectives is the most important thing we can do right now."
