Amy Murrell has been named chief people officer at Rest Super, having served as general manager for people and culture since May 2021.

Over the last three years, she played a crucial role in developing the fund’s employee-centred culture and was instrumental in creating its values and behaviours framework. 

In the new role, she will report to Vicki Doyle, chief executive of the $80 billion fund.

“I warmly welcome Amy Murrell to my executive leadership team as Rest’s first chief people officer,” said Doyle.

“Elevating the people function to the executive table at Rest recognises the value we place in our people and workplace culture. Our people are key to Rest’s success and truly instrumental in supporting our members to achieve their best possible retirement outcome.”

Commenting on the appointment, Murrell said she was “honoured” to take up the senior executive role.

“The Rest team is dedicated to making super simple for our members. To do that we need to continue fostering a culture and working environment where our people can thrive. We want our people to love their work,” she said. 

Prior to joining the super fund, Murrell was general manager, people and culture, at Resolution Life for a year and a half. 

Her vast experience includes over a decade at AMP, where she held multiple senior roles across various business lines and within legal and human resources. She departed after almost three years as head of people services and governance. 

She has also served as a senior associate at law firm Herbert Smith Freehills, where she specialised in employment law.
