Major retailing industry superannuation fund REST has looked internally to appoint two group executives following the departure of five senior executives this week.
The fund announced today that Deborah Potts had been promoted to Group Executive, Employer and Industry Engagement while Trevor Evans had been promoted to Group Executive, People and Change.
The announcement said the new enterprise-wide Group Executive roles would support the continued delivery of an outstanding experience for members and employers.
Confirming the appointments, REST chief executive, Vicki Doyle said Potts had joined REST in 2015 and would lead the newly formed Employer and Industry Engagement function with a focus on the fund’s employers, as well as industry associations.
She said the new role would encompass Rest Advice, relationship management and business development as well as service delivery and employer channel management.
Doyle said Evans, who joined Rest as General Manager People and Culture in August 2014, would lead the continued development of Rest’s culture and change management initiatives.
“I am delighted to congratulate Deborah and Trevor on their new roles, which are key in building Rest’s culture of innovation and in helping us connect with working Australians in ways that matter,” she said.
