Industry fund hires executives

An $11 billion industry superannuation fund has created two new executive executive roles that report directly to the chief executive officer.

Local Government Super, which manages superannuation investments for employees in NSW local governments, has appointed Daniel Musson as chief of people and transformation while Brett Dolling is joining as chief experience officer.

Dolling was previously MTAA Super's general manager of client engagement, having started at the fund more than 13 years ago as a business development manager.

Musson has acted as BTFG's head of bank distribution, Bank of Queensland's group executive people and corporate services and IAG's head of product and underwriting.

In his new role at LGS, Musson will be responsible for the transformation and the change management strategies as the super fund aims to build a stronger and more dynamic organisational culture.

As chief experience officer Dolling will be responsible for enhancing the member experience, leading the different teams across the organisation that directly serve LGS members including financial planning, client relationships and the in-house member contact centre.

LGS is currently undertaking a comprehensive organisational redesign to position itself for the long term, according to chief executive David Smith.

"It's an exciting time for LGS and I'm delighted to welcome Daniel and Brett to the executive team as we embark on the next phase of our development; implementing our long-term growth strategy while continuing to deliver the best possible outcomes for our members," Smith said.

"Daniel has an extensive background in financial services having worked with Westpac, Bank of Queensland and BT Financial Services. He also gained great leadership experience as the CEO of the Australian Institute of Management.

"For the past seven years, Brett has been the general manager of client engagement with MTAA Super. [He] comes to LGS with fantastic industry super experience and a track record of building up an industry fund through challenging but opportunistic times."

Musson started in new role on November 19. Dolling will commence his role on 17 December 2018.

The fund has an ESG focus. In August, Financial Standard reported that the fund had moved mandate with Omega Global Investors for global government bonds to a $440 million mandate to PIMCO to manage global credit as well as government bonds.
