New Chair for SMSF Association
The SMSF Association has announced the appointment of Robin Bowerman as its new chair, effective immediately.
Bowerman, who is head of corporate affairs at Vanguard Investments, has served as the association's vice chair for the past three years and as a board member since 2011.
He replaces Dr. Deborah Ralston, who has resigned from the board following her appointment to the three-member Retirement Income Review panel that was announced by Treasurer Josh Frydenberg last week.
Bowerman said of his appointment: "I am very honored that my fellow directors have asked me to succeed Deborah as Chair. Although we are all greatly disappointed at losing Deborah before the end of her term, we totally appreciate why she has chosen to resign and wish her all the best in this new important role."
Andrew Hamilton, a former chair of the association, has been appointed vice chair.
