Spirit Super long-serving chief executive Leeanne Turner will retire from her position early next year and Jason Murray has been appointed to the role.
Turner had worked in the superannuation industry for 40 years with 11 years at helm at MTAA/ Spirit Super.
Turner said she wanted to embed the merger between MTAA and Tasplan – that finalised in April this year – and hand over to someone else to take the fund to the next stage.
“I am proud to leave Spirit Super in a strong position, with strong investment performance, over $26 billion in funds under management, more than 320,000 members and our member best interest culture stronger than ever,” she said.
Murray, who was currently chief of member experience at QSuper, was appointed to take from from Turner after an extensive search.
He had experience in banking, insurance and superannuation in Australia and the UK, overseeing many areas including product, innovation, digital, business development and distribution.
