SuperConcepts board chair

SuperConcepts has named a former ATO superannuation assistant deputy commissioner as the new independent chair of its board.

SuperConcepts has named former ATO superannuation assistant deputy commissioner Stuart Forsyth as the new independent chair of its board.

Forsyth, who has served as an independent board member for four years, replaces Richard Grellman, who took on the role of board chair in January 2016.

SuperConcepts chief executive Lara Bourguignon said Forsyth’s experience in the SMSF sector would strengthen the positioning of the business in line with its recently adopted simplified operating model.

“Stuart has served on our board as an independent member for more than four years and has extensive SMSF experience from his previous role as assistant deputy commissioner superannuation and, more recently, the non-executive director of SuperIQ Pty Ltd,” Bourguignon said.

“With his unique background across the industry, he brings a broad skill set spanning large organisational experience, government, consulting knowledge and high-level technical skills that our board and leadership team can continue to leverage for the benefit of our clients.”

Forysth was ATO superannuation assistant deputy commissioner from early 2013 to late 2014 and non-executive director at SuperIQ from late 2014 to late 2015, and is currently a director of a Brisbane-based superannuation and consulting business.

He said he was honoured to take on the role of chair and to work more closely with the SuperConcepts leadership team in driving value for the firm’s clients.

“It is a time of great change in the SMSF market and SuperConcepts is primed to lead those changes with our Innovation Lab, which is making impressive strides with artificial intelligence to improve outcomes for our clients,” he said.

“SuperConcepts is positioned to continue its leadership role across the SMSF sector with advances in technology development, leading administration products and the largest technical education team in the country.”

In April 2019, SuperConcepts appointed Bourguignon as its permanent chief executive and announced a series of appointments as well as a management restructure during the remainder of the year.
