The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) has announced Jim Minto as Acting CEO.
Mr Minto, former Chair of ASFA and former CEO of TAL Insurance, will become Acting CEO of the Association from 16 July 2016. A statement by ASFA said he would serve as Acting CEO until a permanent CEO is appointed “later this year”.
“The Board intends to conclude its thorough selection process by announcing a new CEO on Monday 5th September,” said ASFA Chair Dr Michael Easson.
“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 replaces Pauline Vamos, who resigned earlier in 2016 after almost nine years as CEO of ASFA.
“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,” Dr Easson said.
“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.”
