Cbus restructures chief exec team
Cbus has created four new chief executive roles across strategy, transformation, operations and people and appointed a Deputy Chief Investment Officer to help implement the fund’s refreshed strategy.
Kristian Fok, Cbus chief executive, said the restructured executive team comes as the fund looks toward its future growth.
Current Chief Strategy Officer, Investments, Alexandra West, will take on the expanded role of Chief Strategy Officer with responsibility for the fund’s enterprise strategy, performance, advocacy and public affairs.
Former transformation executive at World Vision and Bupa, Natalie Hannemann moves into the role of Cbus’ Chief Transformation Officer from Head of Service and will be responsible for increasing the efficiency of the fund’s operations across the business.
Nancy Day, as Cbus’ new Chief Operating Officer, has also had her role expanded from leading the investments arm of the business, in which she will work to support the fund’s operations across investment, finance and technology.
Justine Hartman brings over two decades of experience in the superannuation industry and people and culture positions to the new role as Chief People Officer, after previously acting as Group Executive People & Culture this year.
Alexandra Campbell has been promoted to Deputy Chief Investment Officer and Head of Private Markets after spending three years spearheading Cbus’ Infrastructure and Private Markets teams. She has held several senior funds management and superannuation roles and brings her private markets expertise to the new role.
“The new roles and a re-invigorated business unit model will support the Fund’s future development, so Cbus is always the organisation we want and need to be for our members,” Fok said.
“We’ve had a period of growth through mergers that has increased our member base and our reach into the media, arts, print, energy and electrical sectors.
“We need to continue to be on the front foot about how we evolve Cbus, aligning our operational capabilities so we can set ourselves up for future growth and continued long term investment performance, and have a strategic focus on the way we work.
“I’m proud of the diversity the Fund has among our senior leaders and I’m proud to say we’ve been able to identify talent from within Cbus. We are driving strong leadership development within Cbus and providing continuity and alignment with our values and culture as a member-centric specialist Fund.”
