Policy head, Jordan George, has announced he has resigned from his role at the SMSF Association which he held for the past seven-and-half years, effective 23 August.
Following this, George would be re-joining Federal Treasury, which was described as the next logical career step, given his interest in all aspects of superannuation policy.
The SMSF Association said he had made a valuable contribution to both the Association and the broader self-managed super fund (SMSF) sector, especially in the policy area.
George led the work on important policy issues including the financial system inquiry, the 2016 superannuation reforms, the establishment of the Financial Advisers Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA) and its educational and ethical standards, as well as the Financial Services Royal Commission and the Productivity Commission superannuation review.
SMSF Association would look to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced replacement later this year.
