CareSuper names Michael Dundon as new CEO

2 December 2022

Experienced superannuation fund executive, Michael Dundon, has been named CEO of CareSuper. He will replace Julie Lander who announced earlier this year that she planned to step down after more than two decades in the role.

Mr Dundon was previously CEO of VicSuper for close to a decade prior to its merger with Aware Super and before that he was CEO of ESSSuper. He is currently working as Executive consultant with Aware Super.

CareSuper Chair Linda Scott said the Board had undertaken an extensive search and it was pleasing to welcome someone of Michael’s calibre to lead the fund into its next phase.

“CareSuper welcomes Michael at an exciting time for our award-winning Fund. As a proven superannuation leader, our members will benefit from his work to continue to grow CareSuper to be Australia’s leading challenger fund to the mega funds, offering Australians a diversity of fund sizes in the national interest”.

Ms Scott added “Julie has been a tremendous leader of CareSuper for over two decades having overseen significant growth in the fund over that time. She embodies our values and our commitment to members and has made a substantial contribution to the superannuation sector more broadly”.

“We are truly grateful to have had such a remarkable and inspiring leader and we look forward to recognising her enormous contribution to CareSuper over the coming months.”

Ms Lander, who was earlier this year named 2022 Fund Executives Association Limited's Fund Executive of the Year, will remain CEO until Mr Dundon formally joins the Fund in March 2023.
