By Elizabeth Fry

Two executives from Aware Super and Rest Super have joined the board of the super industry's peak professional development body.

Rest's chief risk officer Gemma Kyle and Aware Super's head of people and workplace Steve Hill are replacing Aware Super chief executive Deanne Stewart and Australian Ethical head of super Ross Piper on the FEAL board.

FEAL chair Brian Delaney welcomed the new directors and thanked the retiring directors, who served for 12 months and four years respectively.

"The FEAL Board is committed to empowering world-class leaders of not-for-profit superannuation funds by providing leading professional development and education, as well as deep connection opportunities," he said.

"Steve and Gemma's appointments reflect this. The executives we serve are specialists in their roles and having representation on the FEAL Board from across the different executive roles is part of our strategy to value to our members.

"As FEAL has re-engaged and expanded its suite of events and offerings coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, both Deanne and Ross' considered contributions and insights have set us up well to continue to support today's superannuation fund leaders."

Kyle and Hill join the existing FEAL directors: Lisa Samuels who is the chief experience officer of HESTA, Paul Watson,  group executive of member experience at Hostplus and Belinda Ray, chief audit executive at AustralianSuper.

Also on the board are Jo Townsend, Damian Wills and Chris Davies, chief executives of Funds SA, BUSSQ and TelstraSuper.
