Industry fund appoints risk executive

A $2.5 billion industry superannuation fund recently welcomed a former Energy Super compliance specialist to lead its risk and governance function.

Lisa Swenson joined Intrust Super as executive manager, risk in October. In doing so, she succeeds former Mercy Super chief executive Christian Engelhardt who took on the role earlier this year.

A spokesperson for Intrust said Engelhardt will act in a part-time advisory capacity to assist the transition of the role to Swenson before leaving to focus on his health.

Prior to joining Intrust, Swenson was a compliance specialist at Energy Super and previously worked as a corporate lawyer at Credit Union Australia.

Swenson will also serve as Intrust's company secretary, like Engelhardt before her.

She brings more than 20 years' experience as a lawyer and company secretary across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
