Club Plus Super Chief Executive Stefan Strano commented on the appointments:
“Janet has excellent experience in a broad array of roles within the superannuation, investment and member-based industries spanning more than 30 years. With her expertise in governance, strategy and risk management, Janet has played a large role over recent years in driving significant enhancements to the governance structure of CPS through her work on our Risk & Audit, Remuneration, and Investment Committees.”
“Since 2015 Steve has brought outstanding experience to our board in terms of strategy, member experience, and public policy. He is passionate about ensuring the interests of our members are the focus of everything we do and we’re grateful to now have him in the deputy chair role.”
“Susan has very strong knowledge of the clubs and broader hospitality industry and brings significant experience in industrial relations and human resources.”
“I greatly look forward to working with our board as we pursue our mission: to support the journey of our members to retire on their own terms.”
