Retail industry fund REST has adjusted its executive leadership team, as Trevor Evans, group executive – people, finance and change will retire in August.
As a result, REST will separate the people and change, and finance functions, with a chief financial officer would be appointed soon.
The people and change function, which included human resources, culture, learning and development, and change management, would move into the innovation and transformation group.
Amy Murrell had been appointed the new general manager for people and culture, and would start in May reporting to Jeremy Hubbard – group executive, innovation and transformation.
Murrell held senior human resources roles in the financial services sector, most recently as general manager, people and culture at Resolution Life Australasia.
She also spent more than a decade at AMP Group, including as the head of people services and governance, and the head of people and culture projects.
Vicki Doyle, REST chief executive, said Evans’ retirement had provided an opportunity to refine our structure as we continue to build internal capabilities.
“Amy has demonstrated expertise as well as extensive experience in the superannuation and financial services industry,” Doyle said.
“A senior leader of her calibre will further deepen the capability in this critical function.
“Trevor has been a much-valued part of the Rest team since he joined in 2014 and has been instrumental in recent years as we aligned the fund to a new strategic direction, continued to build internal capability and established new cultural values.”
