Retirement funding provider Household Capital has made three senior appointments across marketing and technology, including one who joins after five years at AustralianSuper.
Mario Garrido would join as chief marketing officer, having spent five years at AustralianSuper where he worked as head of brand, retention and direct growth strategy.
Josh Funder, chief executive of Household Capital, said Garrido’s marketing experience would help the firm reach a larger number of retirees across the country.
Garrido said: “After almost five years at Australia’s largest super fund, I learned that super savings and the Age Pension will not be enough for most Australians to live an adequate or comfortable retirement.
“Joining Household Capital for me means continuing the battle for retirement adequacy, helping Australians thrive in retirement by unlocking the benefits of their hard work in savings in their homes through their working life.”
The second appointments was Matt Chalmers as chief technology officer who joined from fintech firm Blue Goose and previously spent 10 years at IRESS.
Lastly, Brenton Kaitler joined as manager of program and platform and would focus on corporate start-ups, analytics and technology.
Household Capital said both appointments would bring thought leadership and experience from the fintech space.
