The fund said Ms Lindenboim has significant domestic and international experience in strategy development and financial services after working with NAB, Macquarie Group, A.T. Kearney and consulting group McKinsey & Co.
In another new appointment, Elizabeth Weston will join Cbus in a new role as head of legal and governance in the investment area based in Melbourne. She has significant experience in asset management in Australia and the UK and most recently served as general counsel and company secretary for advisory and asset management group River and Mercantile.
