Rest announces new CEO

Friday, 1 December 2017

The Board of Rest Industry Super announced today that it has appointed Vicki Doyle as Chief Executive Officer of the Fund, effective in 2018.
Ms Doyle will join Rest from AMP, where she has been Director, Superannuation, Retirement & Investments, responsible for AMP's retirement and investment products with $120 billion in funds under administration and 1.6 million members. Prior to joining AMP in 2015, she was at BT for two years (responsible for its corporate and direct superannuation businesses) and at Suncorp for nine years in various superannuation and wealth management roles. 
Ken Marshman, Chairman of Rest, welcomed Ms Doyle’s appointment stating: “I have great pleasure in welcoming Vicki as Rest’s new CEO. The Board identified several excellent prospects during a thorough search process that included internal and external candidates, before determining that Vicki was the best-suited person to drive Rest forward.
“Her record speaks for itself. Vicki brings to Rest extensive executive leadership experience and a track record in superannuation advocacy. She is a member of the ASFA Super System Design Policy Council and is also on the FSC Superannuation Board Committee.”
“I am delighted to be joining Rest, one of Australia’s largest superannuation funds,” said Ms Doyle. “It has an enviable record of providing superior benefits and returns for members, and a reputation for innovation and industry leadership.”
Ms Doyle holds an Executive MBA from the Australian Graduate School of Management, a Diploma from the Australian Institute of Company Directors and has extensive Trustee board experience.
Mr Marshman also paid tribute to Mr Hill’s leadership and his contribution to Rest during his 11-year tenure as CEO. “Damian led Rest through several significant periods of industry change and transformation. His legacy is a well-balanced and flexible organisation in a very strong position with around 2 million members and over $45 billion funds under management.” 
“Andrew Howard will be the interim Chief Executive Officer during the transition period and is committed to ensuring the business runs smoothly and Rest continues to work towards achieving its strategic goals.”
