CCIQ leaders appointed to Sunsuper Board of Directors
Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) President Theresa Moltoni and Vice President Professor Mark Harvey have been appointed as Directors of the Board at Sunsuper.
They replace outgoing CCIQ-appointed directors Rob Hutchinson and Paul Lahiff.
Ms Moltoni, appointed chamber president in November, said CCIQ was pleased with the announcement by Sunsuper.
“We are confident that we will contribute to the board both in terms of the skills and experience of the two non-executive directors, but also in terms of our voice on behalf of CCIQ members whose businesses and employees are Sunsuper members and beneficiaries of the fund,” she said.
Sunsuper CEO Scott Hartley welcomed both new directors to the board and said their experience across their respective fields would prove invaluable.
He said Ms Moltoni would bring extensive human resources and business leadership experience to the organisation, as well as excellent business networks, while Professor Harvey brought investment expertise and experience in nurturing digitally enabled business models to the team.
Ms Moltoni’s appointment also extends Sunsuper’s gender diversity to four out of nine directors.
“Ms Moltoni and Professor Harvey’s appointments will complement the diverse and significant pool of talent that already sits on the Sunsuper board,” Mr Hartley said.
“The mix of board members ensures the interests of members are best served at the highest level of the organisation. Each of the directors’ vast experience in their respective fields will prove valuable in the further development and execution of our strategy, including the cultural and digital transformation of our business.”
Sunsuper’s chair Ben Swan thanked Mr Hutchinson and Mr Lahiff for their outstanding service to Sunsuper during their terms.
“Both Paul and Rob’s extensive knowledge, experience and wise counsel will be missed. We welcome Sunsuper’s two new directors to the board and look forward to their distinct and valuable contributions,” he said.
Sunsuper is one of Australia’s biggest superannuation and retirement business with more than one million members and $35 billion in funds under management.
Ms Moltoni, a University of Southern Queensland (USQ) Law student, has been awarded an Order of Australia Medal in honour of service to Industrial Relations. She was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday honours list.
