Member Representative Director departs Qantas Super

Board Move


Qantas Super has announced the departure of member representative director, John Sipek, after 15 years' service.

Sipek, an aircraft maintenance engineer, served as a member representative of Group C, which is classified by Qantas as “Aircraft Trade Persons other than provided for in Group D, Store Workers and Food Production Workers”.

Sipek is a senior union delegate with the Aircraft Workers’ Union, and has been a Councillor of Moonee Valley City Council since 2004, serving over the years as Mayor and Deputy Mayor.

Of the importance of having member-elected board directors, Sipek said: “In how many other organisations would shareholders or members have direct contact with their Directors? The great part of having member-elected Directors is that members can actually speak to you.”

The fund said of his departure: "Having become one of our longest-serving directors, Qantas Super thanks John for his service and dedication over the last 15 years."

Sipek is succeeded by new Group C representative Ryan Greaves.
