Dr Martin Fahy, former chief executive of the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA), has been named managing director of strategy and consulting at Accenture. 

In this role, his remit includes working with clients to deliver impactful long-term sustainable outcomes through technology-enabled transformation.

He joins the strategy and consulting practice after almost seven years at ASFA where he led the organisation through numerous transformative periods in the superannuation space, including the introduction of the Your Future, Your Super (YFYS) performance measures; Protecting Your Super Package (PYSP) reforms; and the COVID-19 early release scheme. 

He resigned from his position as CEO of ASFA in May this year.

Before this, Dr Fahy had been a partner at KPMG for four years.

Announcing the new role on LinkedIn, Dr Fahy said: “I have spent the last four weeks settling in, getting out in front of clients, and understanding the depth of global insights, and technology capability that Accenture has built.

“The warm welcome from Peter Burns, Louise May, Ian Pollari, Andrew Wilson and everyone across Accenture but particularly the Next Gen and CFO Finance team has been amazing.

“Leading the team will see me returning to my GBS, Finance Transformation and Operating model roots and I’m looking forward to building on the great group of people that Jim Piper has led for the last year and welcoming new talent to the team.”

Dr Fahy added that he won’t be “abandoning” the superannuation sector or financial services and will work to support Accenture clients across the two sectors. 

“After the challenge of the last few months, I’m really looking forward to reconnecting with everyone and delivering great outcomes for clients,” Dr Fahy said.

In the interim, ASFA chair Gary Dransfield has taken up the role of CEO at the industry body. He is a non-executive director of Hollard Insurance and of the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
