I am delighted to confirm that the AvSuper Trustee has elected Mr Tom Grant as the new Chairman of AvSuper from 1 May 2010 , following the retirement of AvSuper’s long serving Chairman David Leggo.
Tom has been a Director on the AvSuper Board for 20 years and is an Employer nominated Representative. Tom has qualifications in Economics (both a Degree and Masters), is PS146 compliant and has extensive experience in superannuation investing, corporate governance, project management and employee relations. He held a variety of roles with Airservices Australia between 1996 – 2005 and served as their Corporate Secretary for 9 years.
Since 2005 he has undertaken a number of consultancies in the governance and organisational development field. Tom’s exemplary experience in superannuation and his familiarity with the Fund’s history, coupled with his strong understanding of the operational and technical aspects of superannuation matters (administration, insurance and tax) will greatly benefit members.
The Directors and staff of AvSuper look forward to an exciting future and congratulate Tom Grant on his new role.
Chief Executive Officer
