Vision Super has announced the appointment of Nikki Schimmel as its new chief risk officer, where she would oversee the risk and compliance functions of the fund.
Schimmel joined Vision from LUCRF Super, where she was chief risk and compliance officer for over seven years. She also previously worked for KPMG for more than a decade before joining LUCRF and prior to that, at the Australian Taxation Office.
Vision Super’s chief executive, Stephen Rowe, said adding an extra senior executive to oversee risk and compliance was an important step in the process of putting members’ best interest at the centre of the fund.
“Nikki spent seven and a half years guiding a similar sized fund through a complex, changing regulatory landscape, and considerably enhancing their governance arrangements, and we look forward to having her at the helm as that landscape continues to shift,” he said.
