CareSuper announces new deputy chair

Industry super fund CareSuper announced a series of appointments to their board following the retirement of deputy chair David Michaelis.

Director Terry Wetherall, who joined CareSuper in 2015 as an employer director, will succeed Michaelis as the fund's new deputy chair.

Wetherall's board experience includes current directorships for the New South Wales Business Chamber and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The announcement was welcomed by chair of the board, Cate Wood who said: "Terry has been a valued member of the CareSuper board since 2015 and we look forward to the benefit of his knowledge and skill over the next few years."

Wood also acknowledged Michaelis' service to CareSuper and the board.

"Michaelis joined the CareSuper board in 2012 and has been an integral part of CareSuper's achievements since that date. We would like to thank him for his dedication and contribution to the fund."

Claire Keating was also appointed to the CareSuper board in January.

Keating, who serves as a director of multiple financial organisations, replaced Michaelis as a new employer director.

"We are confident that Claire will make a dynamic and valuable addition to the board's structure," Wood said.

Wetherall commenced his term as deputy chair on 1 January 2017.
