Enrico Burgio appointed as Rest’s Head of Public Policy

Rest, one of Australia's largest profit-to-member superannuation funds, has appointed Enrico Burgio as Head of Public Policy, as part of its focus on supporting policy and regulatory outcomes in the best interests of its growing membership.

The role, reporting to Tyrone O’Neill, Rest’s Chief People, Strategy and Corporate Affairs Officer, will be responsible for delivering Rest’s Public Affairs strategy through central coordination of Rest’s public policy positions, including strategic government and stakeholder engagement.

Mr Burgio brings extensive experience in public policy development, stakeholder engagement, government relations, and strategic communications.

"Enrico’s strong track record navigating complex policy environments and cultivating positive productive relationships with government and industry stakeholders are a welcome addition to Rest’s Corporate Affairs function," said Mr O’Neill.

"Enrico’s skill and experience will prove enormously valuable as we continue our work to champion the best financial interests of our almost 2 million members and seek to represent their interests in our public policy engagements and activity."

Most recently, Mr Burgio was the Senior Manager – Policy and Advocacy at HESTA.

Mr Burgio said he was looking forward to joining Rest and representing the interests of members.

"Our superannuation system should work for all Australians. Rest uniquely represents more than a million members under the age of 30 and one million women, and I look forward to working to ensure the interests of all Rest members are properly considered in public policy decision making," said Mr Burgio.

Mr Burgio joined Rest on 13 November.
