Helen Jackson is set to step down as chief people officer at Australia’s second-largest superannuation fund.

She joined Australian Retirement Trust (ART) in August 2021 and has held the executive role for almost three years. 

A spokesperson for the fund confirmed she will be leaving the organisation at the end of the financial year. 

Jackson brought over three decades of experience to the position, joining from Worley Consulting, formerly Advisian, where she held a number of people director roles over four and a half years.

She has also held a number of leadership roles at EY, where she worked for six and a half years, and Westpac, where she worked for five and a half years.

With her departure, the role of chief people officer at ART will be taken up by Kylie Robinson in an interim capacity, the fund told Super Review. 

Robinson was at QSuper prior to its merger with Sunsuper in 2022 and has been serving as head of people business partnering and operations at ART. 

Earlier this year, the fund announced two key board appointments, welcoming former APRA deputy chair Helen Rowell and former Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) board member Dr Martin Parkinson as new independent directors.

ART chair Andrew Fraser described Rowell and Parkinson as “outstanding additions” to the board, who brought with them “exceptional and deep national and international experience.”

The board appointments replaced vacancies that arise from the departure of Georgina Williams and Michael Traill, who chose not renominate.
