UniSuper has recruited a new chief marketing and growth officer as one of a trio of new faces to its executive leadership team.  

Dani Murrie has joined the industry super fund from MetLife, where she was a senior consultant for 18 months. Her background in finance includes product, marketing and customer management roles with Colonial First State, Westpac, Commonwealth Bank and First Abu Dhabi Bank in the UAE.  

Murrie will sit alongside two other female executive leaders joining the team: UniSuper’s new chief member and advice officer, Danielle Mair, and chief financial officer, Anastasia Crisafi.  

UniSuper CEO, Peter Chun, said the three newly created roles will support organisation-wide strategic alignment aimed at helping the business deliver greater value to members through competitive returns, low fees and excellent service.  

“UniSuper has always championed Australia’s brightest thinkers, across our member base and our employees, and I am focused on bringing together a leadership team with a wide variety of skillsets and backgrounds. We’re proud to be a diverse fund for a diverse nation,” Chun said.  

“Creating these positions and appointing three remarkable leaders was an easy choice for us – they were the standout candidates. Each new hire brings unique and valuable perspectives to the fund as we put a greater focus on growth and financial management in an increasingly competitive super landscape.”  

Murrie’s remit brings together marketing, digital, product and employer partnerships in the name of driving growth. She appointment follows the departure of chief marketing and strategy officer, Anand Thomas, last November.  

“UniSuper has such a strong story to tell – with a history of strong long-term performance and low fees. I look forward to accelerating the lift in brand awareness and delivering an exceptional employer and customer experience,” she commented.  

Mair, meanwhile, will be responsible for streamlining member experience when she commences her role on 1 March 2022.  She joins UniSuper from Sunsuper, where she held a number of senior leadership roles including acting chief strategy, member growth and advice officer, manager of enterprise change and executive general manager of customer engagement. Prior to Sunsuper, Mair held senior leadership roles at Macquarie Bank, MBF and Suncorp across advisor and client services, contact centre, transformation project management and customer service.  

“I’m looking forward to taking on the new challenges presented by joining a growing fund – helping ensure that our members get the most out of their super,” Mair said.  

Crisafi has been appointed UniSuper’s new CFO from Link Group, where she worked for the last seven years, most recently as global finance director of retirement and superannuation solutions. She starts at UniSuper on 1 April 2022.  

UniSuper was founded in October 2000 through a merger between the Superannuation Scheme for Australian Universities (SSAU) and the Tertiary Education Superannuation Scheme (TESS) and had $101 billion under management as at 30 June 2021.
