The SMSF Association has announced the appointment of Peter Hogan as the new Head of Technical.
SMSF Association CEO Andrea Slattery said it is an “extremely important role” in the organisation.
“Peter, currently National Manager – SMSF Advice, at MLC Technical, brings many years of experience in SMSFs to the organisation, having previously worked before MLC at Plaza Financial, Colonial First State Investments, Macquarie Bank and the ATO in key superannuation, investment and taxation roles, and now the Association has the opportunity to benefit from this varied and rich skill set built up over many years,” she said.
“The Association, as the leader in technical and advisory services in the financial services and superannuation industries, is committed to ensuring its members keep their competitive edge, and having a person of the calibre of Peter in this role is critical to this process.”
“The Association recognises the search for excellence in the SMSF specialist space is a journey without an end, and as such we must continue to offer our members the best opportunity to achieve at all levels, whether it be regulatory, technical or professional.”
Peter Hogan said he is “excited and honoured” to be appointed to the position.
“I have a long relationship with the SMSF Association, having served as a Director between 2004 and 2013, including the roles of Chairman and Vice Chairman,” he said.
“I understand the important role that the Association plays in both the SMSF sector and the broader superannuation industry as an advocate for professionalism and high educational standards, and I look forward to contributing in every way possible in my new role.”
“Having spent much of my professional career in superannuation and financial services, I want to use my experience and skills to the benefit of our members and the wider SMSF sector.”
