Andrea Slattery to step down from SMSF Association board
The Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) Association has announced that Andrea Slattery is stepping down from its board, effective 18 April 2019.
Slattery, who was the inaugural CEO and one of the founding members of the association, became a non-executive director following her resignation as MD and CEO in April 2017.
Her decision to resign from the board is to focus on her other board roles, the SMSF Association said. These include at AMP, Argo Global Listed Infrastructure and The Clean Energy Finance Corporation.
Slattery said of her tenure: “From a starting position of where the SMSF sector’s future was in question, we have overseen the emergence of the multi-skilled SMSF specialist to service the 1.1 million people who have opted to take personal control of their retirement savings, whether it be in the accumulation or pension phase. I am proud of what we have achieved, and leave the organisation knowing it is well positioned for its next growth phase."
In acknowledging the depth of her contribution, SMSF Association chair Professor Deborah Ralston said: “We will not only sorely miss her experience, knowledge and breadth of industry and government relationships, but the unbounded enthusiasm and energy she brought to the task, whether it was as the CEO or non-executive director."
She added: "The fact every major inquiry into superannuation, starting with the Cooper Review in 2010, has largely given the SMSF sector a clean bill of health is a testimony to what she helped achieve over this period.”
