The Financial Services Council has invited Colonial First State Superannuation boss Kelly Power onto the board.

Power was appointed head of  Colonial First State Superannuation in July 2021 and also became a member of the trustee board.

She initially joined as general manager of product three years earlier, ultimately adding marketing and strategy and responsibility for the wrap business.

Before moving to Colonial First State, Power was the head of platforms at BT Financial Group, where she also held several other executive management roles.

"We are delighted to have someone of Kelly's calibre and experience in the superannuation, financial advice and platforms sectors joining the FSC Board," said FSC chair, David Bryant.

"As a senior industry leader with a commitment to placing the interests of consumers at the forefront of policy development, Kelly will make an invaluable contribution as the FSC continues to lead national debates."

Power noted the higher level of innovation and competition in the sector and said she looked forward to working with her fellow FSC directors to drive positive change for consumers and help shape the future of financial services in Australia.
