Vamos sniffs the boardroom leather

Rollover was delighted to see that former Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) chief executive, Pauline Vamos, had picked up a couple of board gigs following her executive departure from the superannuation scene last year.

Vamos has picked up non-executive director positions at fintech firm Decimal and, most recently, at Mercer Super (Australia) – positions which will give those firms the benefit of her deep knowledge of superannuation and regulation.

When Vamos left ASFA there was plenty of speculation about her moving back into financial services regulation at either the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) or the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) but sitting on the boards of regulated entities would seem to rule that out for Vamos.

In the meantime, Rollover has discerned that ASFA has become a very different place under its new chief executive and former FINSIA boss, Dr Martin Fahy.

Just how different ASFA has become under Fahy is expected to be visible at the organisation’s annual conference in Sydney in November.
