Former Qantas Super CEO Jane Perry has been appointed as a non-executive director at AIA Australia.

She served as CEO at Qantas Super for almost four years before stepping down at the end of 2015 and “steered Qantas Super strategically through a period of unprecedented regulatory and industry change with care and distinction” during her tenure, according to the fund. 

Perry brings more than three decades of experience to the AIA Australia board, including over a decade at AXA, where she worked in operations and human resources roles until she was promoted to chief operating officer.

She has also served as CEO at JP Morgan Chase & Co, leading its worldwide securities services for Australia and New Zealand, and was promoted to CEO of Treasury and Securities Services for Australia and New Zealand.

“I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Jane Perry as an independent non-executive director to the AIA Australia Board,” said Damien Mu, CEO of AIA Australia. 

“Jane is extremely accomplished, and we look forward to drawing on her operational and leadership expertise to help us pursue our dream to make Australia the healthiest and best protected nation in the world.”

The board is chaired by Peter Yates AM and includes independent non-executive directors Jane Harvey and Geoff Austin.

“I am thrilled to be joining the AIA Australia board and look forward to being able to contribute to an organisation committed to enhancing the lives of Australians,” said Perry on her appointment.

She is currently a director of the board of QIC and serves on the risk and audit committees.

Previously, she has served on the boards of Westpac BT Financial Group Superannuation, including chair of the insurance subcommittee; National Mutual Staff Superannuation Plan; and JP Morgan Nominees Australia Limited.

She has also chaired the board of the Fund Executives Association Limited (FEAL) and was a board member of the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA), representing corporate funds as the CEO of Qantas Super.
