Industry veteran announces retirement

SMSF Association

The SMSF Association has confirmed its head of technical Peter Hogan will be retiring at the end of September.

SMSF Association head of technical Peter Hogan has announced he will be retiring at the end of September.

Hogan has held his current position with the industry body for four years, having been recruited from a superannuation role at MLC.

His career has also included stints at the ATO and other financial services organisations, including Ernst & Young, Mercer, Macquarie Bank and Colonial First State.

SMSF Association chief executive John Maroney described Hogan’s commitment, loyalty and enthusiasm toward the organisation as “infectious”.

“We all benefited from his deep understanding of all things SMSF, irrespective of whether he was serving in an executive or board role,” Maroney said.

“He gave generously of his time and knowledge, especially as it related to the national conference, helping to ensure it remains the pre-eminent event for SMSFs.”

SMSF Association chair Andrew Hamilton acknowledged Hogan’s significant contribution to the industry as a whole.

“It’s been an enormous privilege to have known Peter over a long period, not just because of his contribution to the association in various roles, but because of what he gave more broadly to our superannuation sector,” Hamilton said.

“There are few people who can claim to have such a positive impact on the SMSF sector over many years – someone whose advice was keenly sought and counsel widely regarded. The industry, governments and regulators all profited from his insights over many years. 

“But it wasn’t just his knowledge, experience and commitment that endeared Peter to so many people. It was also his professional approach, warm manner, kind word and genuine interest in everyone who entered his SMSF world that people will fondly remember Peter for.”

Hogan described his time with the association in a variety of roles as a privilege.

“As an inaugural board member, chair for three years and then serving on the executive for the past four years as head of technical, it’s been a source of great pride and pleasure to me to see our super sector not only grow but flourish and to know our association has been an integral part of this,” he said.

His retirement announcement comes shortly after Peter Burgess commenced his second stint at the SMSF Association as deputy chief executive and director of policy and education.
