The Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST) congratulates AustralianSuper CEO Ian Silk on his transformative 15-year leadership of Australia’s biggest superannuation fund.
“Ian Silk has not only proved a visionary and successful leader for his fund and its members, he has also helped shape the profit-to-member superannuation system more broadly,” says Eva Scheerlinck, CEO of AIST.
“His commitment to helping Australians build a dignified retirement, his mentorship of up and coming leaders, his integrity and involvement in many of the sector’s working groups and bodies will leave a lasting legacy.”
Mr Silk built AustralianSuper from a $21 billion dollar fund 15 years ago, to the $225 billion fund with 2.5 million members that it is today, while consistently delivering great outcomes for its members.
Ms Scheerlinck also congratulates Paul Schroder, who has worked closely with AIST and the wider profit-to-member community, having been with AustralianSuper for 14 years, most recently as the fund’s Chief Risk Officer.
“It’s an amazing opportunity to further the work Ian has done over the last 15 years – they are big shoes to fill, but there can be no doubt that Paul will be an excellent CEO,” she says.
“Paul will do great things for his members, and my team and I look forward to working with him.”
