SMSF administration, software, and training provider, SuperConcepts, has added a new staff member to its sales team and promoted a long-standing executive to a new role.

Pressler - who will also oversee SMSF sales in Western Australia and South Australia - rejoins the firm after a three-year break at the Commonwealth Bank as a relationship manager and at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia in a similar role.

Before her first stint at SuperConcepts in 2014 as an SMSF solutions manager, she worked at AMP, Westpac, and TAL.

Garry Johnston has been promoted to national manager of software sales.

Johnston - who previously acted as state manager of sales for Queensland  - earlier worked for at 4Front Accountants, Capalaba and Supercorp.    
 "It's been a huge year of development for us as we launched the latest iteration of our SMSF software, SuperMate," said SuperConcepts, growth executive Annette Sheppard.

Commenting on the appointments, Sheppard said the firm sees increasing opportunities within the advised space, and she is confident that Pressler's breadth of knowledge and experience will strengthen its ability to add value to the industry

"It was was a natural progression for us to appoint someone to own software sales, and Garry's experience as an SMSF software user allows him to really understand the needs of SuperMate clients."

"It's pivotal for us to embrace the momentum we're seeing and provide support to the opportunity and I'm confident that Sarah and Garry will do just that."

Pressler said she looked forward to leveraging her existing relationships from her time working in the advised channel with AMP and hopes to build deeper connections with large licensees across the industry.

"SuperConcepts' refreshed service offering complements the needs of advisers, allows them to diversify their client base, and provides an SMSF model that satisfies the flexibility their clients now desire," she added.

"I'll be working closely with national key accounts in need of an SMSF partner to reduce compliance load and risk in their organisation."
