Mining industry super fund Mine Wealth + Wellbeing (Mine) has recruited a former Westpac financial planning manager and a digital entrepreneur to its executive team in a move to strengthen member engagement and enhance the fund’s digital experience.

Glenda Abraham has stepped into the role of chief engagement officer responsible for leading key member and stakeholder teams, and improving focus on members through intensified coordination of effort across the organisation.

Abraham’s financial services career spans over 20 years with experience across financial advice, operations and engagement-focused roles with Westpac, AMP and the Commonwealth Bank.

Meanwhile, Adrian Colquhoun has been promoted to chief technology and innovation officer from his previous role as acting head of technology.

An experienced consultant, author and software entrepreneur who founded a number of start-ups in the United Kingdom, Colquhoun will look to improve Mine’s digital, innovation and technology capabilities.

Commenting on the recruitment, Mine Wealth chief executive Harry Mitchell said the appointments were part of the fund’s renewed commitment to better serve the needs of its members.

“These appointments will enable our organisation to meaningfully put members at the heart of everything we do and better leverage digital capability to meet their needs,” Mitchell said.

“I am excited about the strength Adrian and Glenda will bring to Mine in order to support our purpose of delivering an exceptional retirement for our members.”
