Tony D’Alessandro will be the new Chief Executive Officer of Statewide Super, effective 1 March 2019.

Mr D’Alessandro will replace Richard Nunn, who in January announced his appointment as CEO of MetLife Australia, resigning from Statewide Super after more than three years in the role.

The chairman of Statewide Super, Ken Williams, said the Board is confident that Mr D’Alessandro will continue to strengthen the company’s reputation and member servicing in a time of unprecedented change and attention on the superannuation sector.

“Tony has enormous respect within the financial services industry and our local communities. His track record is one of driving sustainable business growth, while delivering high quality benefits and experiences to members.” said Mr Williams.

Mr D’Alessandro has a significant experience in private banking, wealth management (Financial Planning, insurance and superannuation) and administration, having held a broad range of Senior Executive Management positions for CBA, St George Bank and Bank SA.

Currently in the role of General Manager, Member Engagement for Statewide Super, Mr D’Alessandro’s appointment followed careful consideration by the Board of the existing succession plan.

Mr Williams continues “Tony has been an integral member of the Statewide Super leadership team for the past three years. His natural ability to develop and inspire high performing teams and winning cultures, allows him to skilfully lead business progress at every opportunity. He is a man of great integrity and honesty with an unwavering belief in equity for all Australians.”

Incoming Chief Executive Officer Tony D’Alessandro, said “It is a privilege to be appointed to lead Statewide Super, as we continue to deliver exceptional outcomes for our member’s retirement income goals. No Australian should be deprived of the opportunity to live a dignified retirement, and this will be my key driver.”

“Statewide Super has become a prominent, respected name across the national superannuation sector. We’ve experienced positive membership growth and increased funds under management, delivered consistently strong investment performance and established a strong, capable and cohesive leadership team. It is exciting to lead the next phase of the organisation’s growth and development.”
