Sunsuper CEO to depart fund

Executive Move


Sunsuper has announced the intended departure of chief executive officer Scott Hartley.

In acknowledging Hartley's contribution, Sunsuper chair Andrew Fraser said: "Over the past five-and-a-half years, Scott has transformed Sunsuper’s scale and capability and steered the organisation through an intense period of growth to become the fastest- growing top-10 superannuation fund in Australia."

He added: “When Scott accepted the role in late 2013, Sunsuper was a $25 billion fund with one million members. Today the Fund manages more than $66 billion in retirement savings for more than 1.4 million Australians."

In paying tribute to the Sunsuper team, Hartley said: “Our extraordinary achievements would not have been possible without having developed a high-performing culture across a team of people who are committed, extraordinarily capable and passionate about our purpose to inspire and empower Australians to fulfil their retirement dreams."

Of his departure, he added: “This has been an agonising decision but the timing is right for me and for Sunsuper. I’m looking forward to new leadership opportunities, and I’m looking forward to following Sunsuper’s continued future success.”

Hartley will stay on as CEO while the board undertakes a selection process for his successor.
