The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) has announced Martin Fahy as its new chief executive.
Martin Fahy will begin in his new role as chief executive of ASFA on 1 November, replacing Pauline Vamos who stepped down after nine years in July 2016.
Mr Fahy is currently a partner at KPMG, and was chief executive of Finsia between 2007 and 2011.
"Martin has a deep understanding of the issues and challenges facing the superannuation industry and will bring [with him] the considered, evidence-based policy insights that can help shape the long-term success of superannuation in Australia," ASFA chair Michael Easson said.
"Martin will lead ASFA into its next period of growth, expanding its role in supporting robust policy debate and raising capability across the sector."
Mr Fahy said he was "energised and excited at the prospect of working with the board and staff of ASFA to deliver better outcomes for superannuation members and helping to inform and shape the super landscape as we enter a new policy era".
Jim Minto will continue as interim chief executive until Mr Fahy takes over in November.
"The board and I would like to thank Jim for stepping in during this interim period. We could not have asked for a better person to ensure a seamless transition during such a critical time for superannuation," Mr Easson said.
