Rest, one of Australia’s largest superannuation funds, today announced two senior executive appointments to drive superior member and employer experience for its almost 1.9 million members and around 164,000 employers.

The two appointments are newly created Group Executive roles, with Ms Deborah Potts promoted to Group Executive, Employer and Industry Engagement, and Mr Trevor Evans promoted to
Group Executive, People and Change.

“These new enterprise-wide Group Executive roles support the continued delivery of an outstanding experience for our members and employers and of Rest’s culture of innovation, said
Vicki Doyle Rest’s Chief Executive Officer.

Ms Deborah Potts joined Rest in 2015 and will lead the newly formed Employer and Industry Engagement function with a focus on Rest’s employers, as well as industry associations. The new
role also encompasses Rest Advice, relationship management and business development as well as service delivery and employer channel management.

Mr Trevor Evans, who joined Rest as General Manager People and Culture in August 2014, will lead the continued development of Rest’s culture and change management initiatives.

“I am delighted to congratulate Deborah and Trevor on their new roles, which are key in building Rest’s culture of innovation and in helping us connect with working Australians in ways that matter,” said Ms Doyle.

Rest is one of Australia’s largest super funds by membership with more than $51 billion in funds under management as at 30 June 2018 and around 1.9 million members.
