The Australian Council of Superannuation Investors, a collaboration of Australian and international asset owners, is adding two board members including AustralianSuper chief executive Ian Silk.
Also joining Silk as a new member on the ACSI board is First Super trustee director Candy Broad. The pair joins the board to oversee the council's finances and regulatory requirements.
"The depths of experience, knowledge and skills both Candy and Ian bring with them will be an asset to the board and to ACSI itself," ACSI chief executive Louise Davidson said.
"I look forward to working with them both in the years ahead as we help enhance the long-term, sustainable value of the retirement savings entrusted to our members."
Silk and Broad join nine other ACSI board members including HESTA chief executive Debby Blakey, QSuper chief executive Michael Pennisi, and Hostplus chief executive David Elia.
ACSI has 29 Australian members, including profit-to-member superannuation funds and asset managers who manage money for the profit-to-member sector.
Collectively the super funds and asset managers manage more than $450 billion in assets on behalf of over eight million Australian superannuation fund members and retirees.
Earlier this year, Silk was also named as part of the newly created Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Asset Owner Advisory Committee, one of only fifteen inaugural committee members from around the world.
