Former ATO heavyweight joins SMSFOA advisory council
The SMSF Owners’ Alliance has announced the formation of a Policy Advisory Council including a former KPMG executive director and a previous ATO assistant deputy commissioner.
SMSFOA said the Policy Advisory Council will offer strategic advice to the lobby group on how best to fulfil its mission of promoting and protecting the interests of Australia’s one million SMSF trustees.
Former ATO assistant deputy commissioner Stuart Forsyth, former KPMG executive director Diana D’Ambra and managing director of Hood Sweeny Matthew Rowe have all joined the council.
Chairman of SMSFOA, Bruce Foy said the formation of the council will create a sounding board for ideas on the development of SMSFOA as a strong representative voice for Australians who have stepped up to take responsibility for their own retirement savings.
“Diana, Stuart and Matthew will bring an independent and knowledgeable perspective to the table and help to guide our thinking on the important strategic policy issues with which we are dealing,” said Mr Foy.
