Today, Mine Super, the $13b industry super fund for the mining sector announced the appointment of Vasyl Nair to the role of Group CEO. Mr Nair has led the Fund on an interim basis since March and was successfully appointed to the permanent Group CEO role on 30 November.

Mr Nair has a background in law and corporate finance, having also held roles across operations, strategy, marketing and risk at some of Australia’s largest financial services institutions. More recently, Mr Nair held the role of Deputy CEO and Chief Risk Officer at Mine Super before being appointed as the Group CEO.

Mine Super Chair Grahame Kelly said the Board was delighted with Vasyl’s appointment, believing it demonstrated strong succession planning while recognising the influential role Vasyl played in Mine Super’s recent history. The appointment also ensured continuity of service to members after the departure of previous Group CEO Harry Mitchell.

“Over the past five years, Vasyl has been an integral part of the Executive Team that has overseen a rebrand, new administration platform implementation, investment strategy overhaul, insurer change and risk transformation. These efforts see us placed as one of Australia’s top performing funds over the last financial year. Our succession planning has been robust and we are very pleased to have such a committed, dynamic and capable leader within our ranks, who will continue to deliver the best retirement outcomes for our members. I’m extremely confident Vasyl will continue to propel the Fund successfully forward into 2022 and beyond”.

Mr Nair said of the appointment, “It’s a privilege to lead such an amazing fund, with its rich 80-year history, and I’m grateful for the confidence of the Board. I’ve been a part of the Mine Super family for over five years now and have experienced first-hand the deep care that our teams have for our members and their communities. I’m committed to continuing that care and I look forward to leading a team that works tirelessly to helping members achieve the retirement they deserve”.
