AUSTRALIA - AustralianSuper has appointed ASFA's Louise Du Pre-Alba to the new role of head of policy.
Du Pre-Alba joins from the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA), where she held the similar role of director of policy.
She resigned from ASFA after just nine months following the conclusion of the Stronger Super consultation period. She will remain with ASFA until the end of July before joining AustralianSuper in August.
In her new role, Du Pre-Alba will be responsible for research, analysis and recommendations relating to the strategic implications of superannuation and other relevant public policy developments, AustralianSuper said.
