Equip and Catholic Super have appointed Scott Cameron as Chief Executive Officer. He will head the funds' joint venture announced earlier this year, which will create one of Australia’s largest profit-for-member superannuation entities at $26 billion and 150,000 members. His appointment becomes effective in September 2019.
Previously, Mr Cameron held senior executive positions with Australian listed company, Computershare, most recently as CEO of its Australia and New Zealand division.
Equipsuper chair, Andrew Fairley AM, said Mr Cameron’s expertise in bringing diverse businesses together made him the perfect candidate to lead the funds through a new era of change and growth.
“Scott has experience of significant acquisitions, growth and expansion. He has led integrated operations and employees across multiple worksites,” Mr Fairley said.
Catholic Super chair, Danny Casey, said: “His experience of digital and advanced technology will also be an invaluable asset to the growth of the new combined fund.”
He praised Mr Cameron’s record of blending cultures, integrating organisations and introducing innovative technology.
“Scott has extensive experience building both business-to-business and business-to-consumer operations, along with a talent for team creation and innovation. His proven skills will be essential as we pursue our vision to create Australia’s first profit-for-members house of superannuation brands.”
“The joint venture between Equipsuper and Catholic Super is an innovative approach to superannuation and Scott’s skills will enhance this”, Mr Casey said
Mr Cameron said he was looking forward to engaging with the outstanding teams at Equip and Catholic Super and to growing the business further to benefit members.
Mr Fairley expressed his appreciation for Equipsuper’s CEO, Nick Vamvakas, for leading the organisation through a period of significant expansion and exceptional returns for members.
“Nick deserves praise and recognition for his tireless efforts over the past five years plus, which have built such a strong base for Equip,” Mr Fairley said.
