LGIAsuper chair, Bronwyn Morris, has announced she will retire from the board of the $10 billion Queensland super fund when her three-year term as an independent director ends on November 30, 2016.
Morris was appointed as one of three independent directors on December 1, 2013, during a period of significant renewal for the fund, which also saw a member representative director election and new employer representative director appointments.
On October 1, 2014, Morris was elected chair following the retirement of Brian Roebig OAM, who led the fund for 19 years.
LGIAsuper chief executive, David Todd, congratulated Morris on her contribution during a time of enormous change for the fund.
“Operating in an increasingly competitive environment where retention and growth are vital to a fund’s success, Bronwyn’s tenure marked the start of [an] era of transformation that has positioned the fund for successful long-term growth that will benefit all its members,” Todd said.
“Bronwyn’s key achievements will leave a significant legacy for members, staff and peers and we thank her for the knowledge and leadership she has imparted.”
During her tenure, Morris led the fund’s current business strategy and focus on a stronger governance structure through enhanced monitoring, performance and operations.
Morris also drove the replacement and modernisation of LGIAsuper’s administration system; its name change from LGsuper to LGIAsuper; and the move to open the fund to family and friends of existing members in communities across Australia.
A process for appointing a successor is underway.
