Australia’s Crown Resorts has announced another key appointment on its transformation pathway with former superannuation boss Ian Silk named Chairman of Crown Melbourne.

Silk, who headed Australia’s largest super fund, AustralianSuper, for 15 years until 2021, will be joined on the Crown Melbourne board by former banking executive Helen Silver and former Managing Director of consulting firm Hay Group. Silk will also become a non-executive director on the board of Crown Resorts, the company said.

“Mr Silk is widely recognised as one of Australia’s most experienced business leaders, with deep expertise in governance, investment and risk management,” Crown said in a Thursday statement.
