Aware Super has charged its deputy investment chief Damien Webb with stepping up the fund's global push.

Webb has been named head of international as the fund takes the next step in its international expansion program.

In the new role, he will serve as an executive lead of the investments function's continued international expansion and act as an ambassador for Aware Super's values and leadership capabilities.

The role will also be responsible for building the presence of Aware Super, firstly in Europe and then in other offshore markets.

He is also tasked with growing relationships to support the effective origination and ownership of assets.

Aware Super chief investment officer Damian Graham said he was "delighted" to announce that Webb has accepted this exciting new growth opportunity within the investments team as "we continue to focus on key initiatives such as international expansion to deliver longer term strong returns and competitive fees for members."

"Damien's appointment is a testament to his technical expertise, commitment to our Aware Super values, and demonstrated leadership qualities."

Webb joined Aware Super in January 2014 as the head of income and real assets, and in September 2021, was promoted to deputy investment chief and head of real assets.
He will continue in his current role as deputy investment chief during his transition.
