The SMSF Professionals’ Association of Australia’s (SPAA's) chief executive officer (CEO) Andrea Slattery has been appointed to the association’s board as managing director.
Ms Slattery’s appointment was ratified in SPAA’s last board meeting and was effective from 31 May, according to an announcement from the association.
The chairman of SPAA, Andrew Hamilton, said this move will allow the CEO and the board to provide strategic direction and encourages all board members to be strategically focused.
Ms Slattery, who was one of the founders of SPAA and board director for the first three years after the organisation was established, said it’s an “opportune time” to join the board given the “myriad of changes” in the super industry.
“I’ve committed to the vision of the organisation and the board has committed to it ... they wanted me to join them in the vision for SPAA’s future,” Ms Slattery told SMSF Adviser.
“I’m absolutely thrilled with the confidence that the board has in me to help to drive the vision and the future of the organisation, not only through the organisation as the head, but also through the board which has the vision and the strategy.
“Good governance now requires the chief executive to be on the board to ensure there is joint ownership of the strategy between the directors and the senior management,” Ms Slattery added.
