Satwell-Rickson would oversee the super fund’s investment program which managed a global portfolio of assets just under $40 billion and would draw on past experience in both the funds management and superannuation sectors.
HESTA chief executive, Debby Blakey said: “Sonya brings outstanding investment experience and leadership across all aspects of portfolio management”.
“Her insights will help drive innovation and continuing excellence across the spectrum of our investment activities,” she said.
Satwell-Rickson has held various leadership positions at QIC since 2007, and formerly worked in investment and corporate finance at QSuper.
