Rest chief executive Vicki Doyle will join the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia board.
Representing the industry fund sector, she fills a casual vacancy created by the departure of Leeanne Turner, who stepped down as a director in June, following the successful merger of MTAA and Tasplan to form Spirit Super.
Doyle has helmed the $57 billion Rest Super fund since 2018.
During her career, she has worked with some of the country's top financial services organisations.
Previous executive roles include the head of retail and corporate superannuation at BT, executive general manager for super and investments at Suncorp and a director of corporate super at AMP Limited.
Doyle has also served as an executive director on Trustee boards.
"We are delighted to welcome someone of Vicki's calibre and expertise to the ASFA Board at such a critical time for superannuation," said ASFA chair, Gary Dransfield.
"As the industry matures, consolidates and grapples with the efficient implementation of new regulation, Vicki's deep insight into the operations of organisations within the superannuation ecosystem, coupled with her strategic capability, will be invaluable to the board.
The chair thanked Turner for her contribution to ASFA over many years.
Commenting on her appointment, Doyle said ASFA plays a role in continuously improving the superannuation system, so that it can work better for all Australians.
"I am grateful to serve as a director on the ASFA board," she said.
