June 5, 2015 – Egon Zehnder has recruited Jenni Mack to serve on the board of directors of Sunsuper. She is the first director since the organization’s inception that, in an historic move, is not a direct appointment of either of the organization’s shareholder bodies. Ms. Mack, who is based in Sydney, has more than two decades of board experience, including eight years in chair positions, with particular expertise in advising member-based, not-for-profit organizations which, like Sunsuper, operate in a commercial environment. She is the chair of Job Futures, and sits on the Australian Securities and Investment Commission’s External Advisory Panel.
Ms. Mack is best known in the industry for her previous role as chair of Australia’s biggest consumer advocacy group, Choice, and for her effort to create a specialist superannuation consumer group, the Superannuation Consumers’ Center.
“Ms. Mack’s influence in financial services and, in particular her deep understanding of consumer policy and advocacy needs, and public policy, as well as her extensive experience in leading digital transformation of business models, will perfectly complement the current board make-up,” said Scott Hartley, CEO.
“With Ms. Mack’s appointment the board is perfectly positioned to support Sunsuper’s significant and growing scale, the organization’s scope as a full-service super and retirement business for customers, as well as our ambitious strategic goals.”
Sunsuper is one of Australia’s biggest super and retirement businesses with 1.2 million members and $32 billion in funds under management.
Egon Zehnder specializes in the recruitment and leadership solutions business with more than 400 consultants operating from 69 offices in 41 countries.
