The SMSF Association’s Head of Policy, Jordan George, has resigned to take up a position in the Federal Treasury.
The SMSF Association (SMSFA) announced that Gorge, who had been with the organisation for over seven years, had resigned, effective 23 August.
George had “made a valuable contribution to the Association and the broader SMSF sector, especially in the policy area,” said the SMSFA.
“Jordan led the Association’s work on important policy issues including the Financial System Inquiry, the 2016 superannuation reforms, the establishment of FASEA and its educational and ethical standards, the Financial Services Royal Commission and the Productivity Commission superannuation review.”
“One of his most popular contributions was providing a concise summary and analysis of the federal Budget that was always well received by members.”
“His decision to re-join Federal Treasury is a logical career step considering his keen interest in all aspects of superannuation policy,” said a statement by the Association. George had previously worked for the Treasury as a policy analyst.
“The Association and its members wish him all the best in his future endeavours and our sincere thanks for his committed work over the past seven-and-half years.”
The SMSFA intends to appoint a replacement to the position later in the year.
