Political journalist and industry association leader Misha Schubert has been named as the first ever CEO of the Super Members Council of Australia, which was formed by the merger of AIST and Industry Super Australia.

Schubert, who previously led Universities Australia and was a member of the federal parliamentary press gallery, will start with the new organisation in February next year.

SMCA and Hesta chair Nicola Roxon said Schubert had the “skills, fresh insight and gravitas” to ably represent profit-to-member funds.
