Ex-Olympics VP appointed to SPAA
The SMSF Professionals’ Association of Australia (SPAA) has appointed the vice president of the 2010 Winter Olympics as chief operating officer, effective immediately.
New COO Jacqui Murdoch will have administrative oversight of SPAA, according to an announcement released earlier this week.
Ms Murdoch established a management consultant company in 2006 that won contracts with the Olympics in 2012 and 2016. Her responsibilities have also included being vice president of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“As part of the SPAA team, Jacqui will be heavily engaged in stakeholder engagement. She will ensure we utilise our resources efficiently to provide genuine value for our members,” said managing director and chief executive Andrea Slattery.
“Jacqui has an impressive track record as a senior executive, administrator and event manager, having participated at the highest level in managing major international sporting and political events in Australia and around the globe,” she added.
“All this experience will prove invaluable as SPAA prepares itself to meet the challenges that our superannuation sector will encounter in 2014 and beyond.”
