Ian joined LGIAsuper in January 2006 as Scheme Secretary before being appointed Deputy CEO later that year.

As a key member of LGIAsuper’s Executive team, Ian played an integral role in the fund’s merger with City Super and transition to a public fund in 2017.

His commitment to improving operational efficiencies saw LGIAsuper consistently rated one of Australia’s best value for money super funds.

LGIAsuper recently earned a ‘Platinum’ rating by SuperRatings for the 11th straight year and was named Medium Fund of the Year at the 2018 Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards.

Ian said he was proud of the fund’s achievements and its ability to always put members first.

“The best part of the industry is the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of ordinary Australians through helping them save for a dignified retirement.”

“It has truly been an honour working for LGIAsuper and serving our valued members. I wish Kate, the Executive and the Board much success.”

LGIAsuper CEO Kate Farrar thanked Ian for his years of loyal service.

“Ian’s choice to retire provides an opportunity for him to seek non-executive director roles, and a well-deserved opportunity to devote more time to his family and personal interests. We wish him well.”

Ian’s retirement took effect on 29 December 2018. For more information on LGIAsuper’s leadership structure, please visit our Meet the team page.
