Misha Schubert to lead the Super Members Council of Australia as inaugural CEO

Super Members Council of Australia 2 mins read

The Super Members Council of Australia (SMC) Board is delighted to announce Misha Schubert as its inaugural Chief Executive Officer. 

SMC is the new peak body for profit-to-member super funds and their members, representing the interests and retirement savings of more than 10 million Australians. 

Interim Chair Nicola Roxon said a key driver in establishing SMC was the need for deliberate and thoughtful leadership in superannuation policy that reflects our modern society and economy, in an ever-changing environment. 

“The skills, fresh insight and gravitas Ms Schubert will bring to the role as CEO will help SMC achieve those goals,” Ms Roxon said. 

“She will bring energy and perspective to this important work, just at the right time.

“Her experience as a journalist, shaping community campaigns and leading a complex peak body means she will be armed with vital skills to lead SMC at this crucial moment of change.” 

Ms Schubert is widely known across the spectrum of the country’s decision makers and will bring new perspective to this influential position. She joins SMC from Science & Technology Australia where she was CEO. 

Prior to that she held a series of senior communication and advocacy roles including at Universities Australia and the RECOGNISE movement, and as a senior journalist for many years. 

Ms Schubert said it was a great honour to be appointed inaugural CEO of SMC. 

“This is a great responsibility and opportunity to build a powerful voice for those 10 million Australians who entrust their savings with profit-to-member super funds,” Ms Schubert said. 

“I thank the SMC Board for their confidence and am excited to help write the next chapter of the great Australian superannuation story together.”

“It will be a privilege to help secure the very best retirement for so many millions of Australians.”

Ms Schubert will commence with SMC in late February.  She will be based in Canberra with regular presence in Melbourne to lead the existing talented and dedicated team.
