Christian Super names new chief executive

Christian Super appointed a new chief executive to lead the $1.2 billion fund.

Ross Piper steps into the top role after longstanding chief executive, Peter Murphy, resigned in April.

Piper, who has 25 years of leadership experience in the commercial and non-profit sectors, most recently served as World Vision Australia's chief operating officer for the last two years.

He also worked for the international arm as a senior director of operations for the Middle East and Eastern Europe based in Cyprus. Between 2005 and 2010, he was the head of corporate risk at Macquarie Group.

Christian Super chair Neville Cox said Piper brings a wealth of strategic and operational experience across multiple sectors.

"His expertise and skills will be invaluable to Christian Super as we continue to grow. It is with great pleasure that the board looks forward to his leadership as Christian Super continues to pursue its vision," Cox added.

Piper said: "Christian Super has a long track record of operating with clear purpose and intentional impact within the superannuation space. I'm looking forward to joining the team and leading Christian Super as it continues to grow strategically, and I'm thankful for the opportunity to join an organisation demonstrating purpose and impact in its industry."
