VicSuper has appointed Wayne Kayler-Thomson as its chair of the board, replacing Christine Stewart who will be the board’s deputy chair.

Kayler-Thomson was the board’s deputy chair since January 2017 and has been a director of the fund since 2009.

The fund said Kayler-Thomson had leadership experience in the private and public sectors as a strategic business adviser and not-for-profit board director. As an executive and business operator he has worked in the manufacturing and tourism industries, with a range of clients in the corporate, not-for-profit and public sector at national, state and regional levels.

Commenting, VicSuper chief executive Michael Dundon said: “Wayne is committed to continuing to deliver great outcomes for our members and has a key role in leading our ongoing merger discussions with First State Super”.

“I would also like to thank Christine for her dedicated contribution to VicSuper as the outgoing chair, and look forward to working with her in her role as deputy chair,” he said.

VicSuper has entered into the due diligence phase of merger discussion with First State Super and expected a decision on the merger to be made by the end of the year.
