ASFA Statement: 4 July 2016
ASFA announces interim CEO
The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) has today announced that the former CEO of TAL Insurance (until March 2015) and immediate past Chair of ASFA, Mr Jim Minto, will become Acting CEO of ASFA from 16 July 2016 until the appointment of a permanent CEO later this year.
“The Board intends to conclude its thorough selection process by announcing a new CEO on Monday 5th September,” ASFA Chair Dr Michael Easson said.
“In the meantime, we are delighted to have a leader of Jim Minto’s calibre and experience step in during this transition period.”
Mr Minto will replace the highly respected ASFA CEO Ms Pauline Vamos, who announced her resignation from ASFA earlier this year and leaves on 15th July, after nearly nine years at the helm.
“Pauline has been tremendous over the last five months since announcing her resignation. She has continued to run ASFA with the same energy and passion she is renowned for, while being patient with the board in taking our time finding the right candidate.
“I am very glad Pauline is assisting the interim and next CEO in their transitions. She really is a tower of strength to everyone at ASFA.
“I would like to thank Pauline for the enormous contribution she has made to ASFA and the industry and to wish her every success for the future,” Dr Easson concluded.
