Board Move

SMSF Association vice chair Robin Bowerman has retired from the board.

Michael Houlihan, who joined the organisation as a non-executive director in 2019, has been named as his replacement.

Bowerman was chair for a few months and spent more than three years as vice chair. "There have been some challenging issues for the Association over this period," said SMSF Association chair Andrew Hamilton. "The Board has always benefited from Robin's sage advice, policy knowledge, and media background. His ability to see issues germane to the SMSF sector in the broader context of the superannuation industry has been particularly helpful over the journey."

"It's been a privilege and a pleasure to serve the Association," said Bowerman. "Over this time there have been many positive changes in the SMSF sector, and the Association can take pride in its significant role in bringing them about."

Bowerman is the head of corporate affairs for Vanguard Australia and was previously a managing editor for investment magazines at Fairfax Business Media.
