Local Government Super has added Newscastle Deputy Lord Mayor Declan Clausen to its board.

Clausen was first elected as a Newcastle Councillor in 2015 and became Deputy Lord Mayor in 2017. He's also held various roles with Hunter Water.

LGS chair Kyle Loades said, "Declan is a tremendous addition to the Board. His experience and impressive academic qualifications further enhance LGS' commitment to attract the best possible talent to ensure the super fund delivers value and long-term growth for all members.

"LGS is consistently recognised as a global leader for its long-term commitment to responsible and sustainable investing. Declan's commitment to working as a key civic leader driving a strategy of liveability, sustainability and the uptake of smart city technologies during his time at the City of Newcastle demonstrates that he is a perfect fit for LGS."

Clausen recently completed a Masters in sustainable urban development from the University of Oxford.

Clausen replaces the seat of LGS deputy chair Bruce Miller, who is stepping down from the board after more than 11 years; the organisation has 12-year term limits for directors.
