Damian Hill steps down as SuperFriend Chair

Board Move


SuperFriend, a not-for-profit foundation focused on creating mentally healthy workplaces, partnering with superannuation funds and group life insurers, has announced the departure of its inaugural chair, REST CEO Damian Hill, effective 15 December 2017.

Hill, who has been chair of the SuperFriend board for the past 11 years, is succeeded by Cbus CEO, David Atkin, who joined the board in July this year.

Hill will remain as a director on the board until the end of January 2018, when he leaves REST Industry Super.

In acknowledging Hill's contribution, SuperFriend CEO, Margo Lydon, said: “We will be sad to see Damian leave the SuperFriend team. He has brought a wealth of experience to the Board, strong and consistent leadership and unwavering commitment to delivering on our mission. We thank Damian for his incredible service, dedication and substantial contribution in growing SuperFriend to what it is today.”

SuperFriend has also announced that Teifi Whatley, a founding board director, will take on the role of deputy chair and that James Thomas has stepped down from the board following his departure as AMIST CEO.

A replacement for Thomas will be named in due course.
