First Super has added another independent director to its board, former Victorian government minister Candy Broad.
Broad was appointed this month, becoming the twelfth director on the board and increasing the number of independent directors from one to two. There are also now four women on the board.
Broad is currently director of Women's Health Victoria and the Hepburn Community Wind Farm.
First Super chief executive Bill Watson said, as a former government minister for seven years and with 15 years experience in parliament, Broad will "add a new dimension to the skills, experience and prestige of our board."
Broad's ministerial portfolios included housing, local government, energy and resources, and ports.
