Rest appoints Amy Murrell to new role of Chief People Officer

Rest, one of Australia’s largest profit-to-member superannuation funds, has appointed Amy Murrell to the new role of Chief People Officer, marking a significant step in the fund’s strategic focus on its people and culture.

Ms Murrell, who joined Rest in May 2021 as General Manager People & Culture, will now report directly into Rest Chief Executive Officer Vicki Doyle.

“I warmly welcome Amy Murrell to my Executive Leadership Team as Rest’s first Chief People Officer,” said Ms Doyle. 

“Elevating the People function to the executive table at Rest recognises the value we place in our people and workplace culture. Our people are key to Rest’s success and truly instrumental in supporting our members to achieve their best possible retirement outcome,” Ms Doyle said. 

“Through Amy’s leadership as Rest’s Chief People Officer we’ll continue to mature our great work culture and employee experience. This will help us stay focused on our mission to make the experience of super simple for our 2 million members,” Ms Doyle said.

Ms Murrell has played a crucial role in developing Rest’s employee-centred culture over the past three years, and was instrumental in creating Rest’s values and behaviours framework, a key enabler of our strategic plan.

“I’m honoured and excited to be appointed Chief People Officer at Rest,” said Ms Murrell. “The Rest team is dedicated to making super simple for our members. To do that we need to continue fostering a culture and working environment where our people can thrive. We want our people to love their work.”

Prior to joining Rest, Ms Murrell was General Manager, People & Culture, at Resolution Life. Her extensive background in people and culture was honed over more than ten years with AMP, where she held multiple senior roles across various business lines, and within legal and human resources, concluding her tenure as Head of People Services & Governance. Ms Murrell began her career in employment law with Herbert Smith Freehills, equipping her with a unique perspective on workplace dynamics and legal frameworks.
