Directors and executives
Our Directors and Executive Team come from a wide range of backgrounds, many like yours. They’re brought together by a commitment to lead CSC towards its vision to be your trusted partner in achieving the retirement outcomes you deserve.
Our primary responsibility is to act in our members’ interests, to protect their retirement outcomes and to ensure that they and their families are in safe hands. Our directors bring diverse and extensive professional experience to CSC to achieve that goal. But above that, they also have a genuine understanding of our members, and are responsible for all aspects of management of the schemes, including the investment strategy and communication to stakeholders.
Our Chair is independent and all directors are appointed by the Minister for Finance. Some directors are nominated by the Australian Council of Trade Unions and/or the Chief of the Defence Force. Other directors are appointed in consultation with the Defence Minister.
