Following the replacement of Natasha Fenech with Lara Bourguignon as chief executive of SuperConcepts, the self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) services provider has announced a broader leadership team restructure.
The business’ chief operating officer, James Fitzpatrick, would leave SuperConcepts in mid-June to pursue a role outside of the SMSF sector, with his departure creating two new toles of general manager of product, risk and strategy, and general manager of growth. Recruitment was currently underway for both.
The chief financial officer role, empty since Adrian Urquhart departed last month, would be filled by the business’ current finance manager, Mark Bailey. Urquhart had acted as interim CEO between Fenech’s departure and Bourguignon’s appointment.
Both Sherry Midgley and Garth Montgomery would be promoted to the leadership team. Midgley would also be elected from people and culture executive manager to general manager, while Montgomery would remain in his current role as executive manager, communications and content.
Bourguignon said the changes were made with a view of how to best serve clients.
“Our existing Leadership Team has a long tenure with deep experience and I’m excited to be adding to it by promoting from within and identifying new roles that will help better serve our clients and business objectives,” she said.
