Meanwhile, senior executive Michael Rooney, GM for Finance and Compliance  at Media Super has been appointed Deputy CEO of the fund.

Chair to the fund, Gerard Noonan said: “As a former newspaper publisher, business consultant and superannuation executive, Graeme is uniquely positioned to lead the fund. It’s a very challenging environment for printing, publishing and journalism at present.”
