The Super Members Council of Australia (SMC) has appointed its first chief executive.
The body was formed earlier this year from the merger of Industry Super Australia (ISA) and the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST).
It has now appointed Mischa Schubert as its first chief executive, commencing from February 2024 and based in Canberra.
She joins from Science & Technology Australia where she was also chief executive and previously worked at senior communication and advocacy roles including at Universities Australia.
AIST was previously led by Eva Scheerlinck while the head of ISA was Bernie Dean.
Schubert said: “This is a great responsibility and opportunity to build a powerful voice for those 10 million Australians who entrust their savings with profit-to-member super funds.
“I thank the SMC board for their confidence and am excited to help write the next chapter of the great Australian superannuation story together.”
“It will be a privilege to help secure the very best retirement for so many millions of Australians.”
