Rest, one of Australia’s largest profit-to-member superannuation funds, has appointed an experienced executive to lead its Finance Group.
Kulwant Singh-Pangly has been appointed as Chief Financial Officer and will lead the team responsible for financial management and strategy, and taxation.
Mr Singh-Pangly has more than 25 years’ experience across the investment management, superannuation, insurance and banking industries, including five years as the Chief Financial Officer at QSuper.
“Kulwant has a wealth of experience across the broader financial services industry, particularly in the financial management of a large-scale superannuation fund,” said Vicki Doyle, Chief Executive Officer, Rest.
“His leadership qualities and strategic expertise will be a valuable addition to Rest’s Executive Leadership Team as we continue to help our members achieve their personal best retirement outcome.”
Mr Singh-Pangly worked for QSuper from 2011 to 2019 and was Chief Financial Officer from 2014. Prior to that, he was the fund’s Head of Taxation Services. He has also held roles with AMP Group, Clayton Utz and Deloitte.
He will join the fund in June. Rest supports flexible work and, as such, Mr Singh-Pangly will mix time in the Sydney office with working from his home in northern NSW.
Mr Singh-Pangly’s appointment follows the separation of Rest’s Finance, and People & Change functions as a result of Group Executive Trevor Evans’ retirement.
Amy Murrell has commenced as the new General Manager, People & Culture to lead the human resources, culture, learning and development, and change management.
Mr Evans will remain with Rest until August to assist with the seamless transition.
