26 June 2023

Industry Super Australia’s (ISA) board has selected Peter Collins AM KC, former NSW Treasurer, to be its Chair.

Mr Collins, the current Deputy Chair, will become Chair on July 1. He replaces Greg Combet, who leaves ISA after a decade on the board and four years as Chair to lead the new Net Zero Economy Agency.

A former Chair of ISA, Mr Collins is a strong advocate for industry funds and the leading role they play in Australia’s financial industry.

He has been at the coalface of super policy for almost two decades – joining the HostPlus board in 2006. Mr Collins joined the ISA board in 2012, serving as its Chair between 2013 to 2018, then deputy chair from 2018.  

He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (FAIST) and founding Chairman of the Sydney Financial Forum.

In his 22-year career in the NSW Parliament, he served as Treasurer, Attorney General, Health, and Arts Minister, then as Leader of the Opposition. He has since chaired several public boards including Australian Institute of Health & Welfare, Legal Aid Commission of NSW, Cancer Institute, and currently Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District. 

Comments attributable to Industry Super Australia Chair Peter Collins AM KC

“I’m honoured to once again be leading ISA’s talented team as it drives reforms in the best financial interest of members. ISA’s impressive public policy output, advocacy programs combined with the joint marketing campaign makes it a unique and highly effective peak body.”

“I’d like to thank outgoing Chair Greg Combet for guiding ISA through a challenging period, his commitment to improving the life of Australians in retirement was unwavering, and his impact is such that millions of Australians will be more financially secure in retirement due to the reforms he has helped ISA secure.”

Comments attributable to Industry Super Australia Chief Executive Bernie Dean

“Peter is a strong advocate for industry super funds and epitomises the member first ethos of all our board members. His stewardship and support will help us deliver better retirement outcomes for our members.”
