Gregory Hill has been named the new head of data strategy, analytics, and insights at AustralianSuper.

The move came after more than a decade at Melbourne Business School, where he most recently developed and taught data and AI courses in the university’s flagship master of business administration degree program.

His experience also includes two and a half years at ANZ Bank, where he led the data and analytics agenda across the business owners and commercial banking portfolio, and a decade at technology firm Likewize (formerly Brightstar Corp) where he served as head of analytics.

Announcing the appointment on LinkedIn, Hill said he had wrapped up his MBA lecturing gig and “returned to corporate life.”

His role followed AustralianSuper’s “significant technology transformation” announcement last month, shifting to a new operating model that views technology as a key differentiator, poised to set the fund apart within its industry.

According to the fund’s chief technology officer Mike Backeberg, AI is poised to play a pivotal role at AustralianSuper to drive better-informed decisions and create better member experiences.

The fund, which manages a $325 billion portfolio for over 3.3 million members, has since established a dedicated AI engineering team and set a “conservative” target of boosting productivity by 5 per cent company-wide through AI implementation within the next year.

It has also established an AI Governance Forum to guide its approach to the technology and ensure it aligns with the fund’s member interests and values.
