Rest appoints new public policy head
Former Senior Manager – Policy and Advocacy at HESTA, Enrico Burgio, has been appointed as Head of Public Policy at Rest, effective as of 13 November.
Burgio brings expertise in public policy development, stakeholder engagement, government relations and strategic communications to the new role, in which he will be responsible for implementing the fund’s Public Affairs strategy and coordinating its public policy positions.
“Our superannuation system should work for all Australians,” Burgio said.
“Rest uniquely represents more than a million members under the age of 30 and one million women, and I look forward to working to ensure the interests of all Rest members are properly considered in public policy decision making.”
Burgio will report to Tyrone O’Neill, Rest’s Chief People, Strategy and Corporate Affairs Officer.
“Enrico’s strong track record navigating complex policy environments and cultivating positive productive relationships with government and industry stakeholders are a welcome addition to Rest’s Corporate Affairs function,” O’Neill said.
“Enrico’s skill and experience will prove enormously valuable as we continue our work to champion the best financial interests of our almost 2 million members and seek to represent their interests in our public policy engagements and activity.”
