A former ATO executive has announced they will cease their role as director of a Brisbane-based superannuation consultancy firm and is in discussions about their next move.

Stuart Forsyth will leave McPherson Super Consulting on Friday.

Mr Forsyth took on the director role in December 2014, after departing from his position as assistant deputy commissioner – superannuation at the ATO.


He confirmed that he will remain as director of the SuperConcepts board.

“I don’t really have a destination. I’m talking to a few people about what I’m going to do next. I’m going to take a holiday and retain my SuperConcepts role,” Mr Forsyth said.

He added that he intends to spend some time working in his family’s beer brewery business.
