The board of Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST) has announced the appointment of Eva Scheerlinck as acting CEO while the search for a permanent CEO continues.
Ms Scheerlinck, who has been AIST Executive Manager for Governance & Stewardship since 2010, will take up her new role when Tom Garcia, AIST’s current CEO, leaves on March 10 2017.
In December Mr Garcia announced he would be leaving AIST to take up the role of Head of Product for AustralianSuper.
The announcement by AIST said the appointment of Ms Scheerlinck “brings stability and leadership to AIST while the search for a new CEO continues”.
Applications to become AIST CEO closed last Friday and interviews for the new role have begun.
