GESB CEO steps down

Executive Move


Howard Rosario has stepped down as chief executive officer of GESB, the $25 billion super fund for government employees in Western Australia, effective January 2017.

In acknowledging Rosario's contribution, chair John Langoulant said: "Howard’s outstanding stewardship of GESB over the past five years, leading a substantial reform project, has positioned GESB as an efficient and effective organisation focussed on members."

Prior to his 2012 appointment at GESB, Rosario spent 22 years at West Scheme.

Editor's note: Ben Palmer, GESB's general manager of investments, stepped into the additional role of acting CEO in January 2017. In July 2017, Palmer handed the baton to Karen Horne, GESB's general manager of superannuation services.
