Leadership reshuffle at CSSA

The Corporate Super Specialists Alliance (CSSA) has appointed a new president as the lobby group ups its focus on workplace financial literacy consulting.

Current CSSA president Douglas Latto will take up the role of chief executive officer while member Terry Rhodes will take his spot as association president.

In a statement, Mr Rhodes – who is a director of NAB-aligned financial planning firm AFM Advisers – said he relishes the opportunity to more formally advocate on behalf of corporate sector professionals and their clients.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with the CSSA board, regulators, government, funds and members to continue to provide more innovative ways to provide a service which is so important to an individual's retirement savings and insurance choices,” he said.

Mr Latto said the change reflects a slight recalibration in strategy for the lobby group, which – given the regulatory issues facing the corporate super regime – is now broadening its focus to more general financial literacy consulting work.

“Improving financial education in the workplace is the number one goal of the CSSA. Our association enables corporate super advisers to create a forum to work together to provide an even higher level of service,” Mr Latto said.
