Trish Donohue to depart Cbus

22 August 2017

Cbus today announced that Trish Donohue, Group Executive, Investment Services & Solutions, will be departing the Fund at the end of 2017 to explore further career opportunities.

Ms Donohue joined Cbus in January 2000 as the founding member of the investment team and has been a member of the Cbus Executive since 2004. Upon joining the fund, Ms Donohue established and implemented all aspects of the fund’s investment strategy.  

Mr David Atkin, Chief Executive Officer of Cbus, today paid tribute to Ms Donohue’s significant contribution.

“In Trish’s 17 plus years of service she has been responsible for extraordinary fund growth and returns, has built a committed and high-performing investment team, and played a key role in developing the Fund’s vision and ambitious growth strategy,” Mr Atkin said.

“Trish’s commitment and vision have had a very significant and positive impact on both Cbus and the retirement outcomes enjoyed by our members.”

Trish Donohue was a joint winner of the prestigious Chief Investment Officer of the Year trophy at this year’s Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards, together with Cbus’ Kristian Fok. 

Mr Atkin said Cbus members build our nation so there is a natural symmetry with their superannuation being invested into their industry that that creates jobs today and strong returns for a secure retirement into the future – a strategy that Trish has championed in her time at Cbus.

“The Cbus Board acknowledges Trish’s contribution to Cbus’ stellar investment track record – being a consistently high performing fund over both short and long term periods – and together with her fellow executives and colleagues wish her all the best for her future endeavours,” Mr Atkin said.

“I feel so privileged to have been part of Cbus’ amazing journey over the past 17 plus years and proud of what we have built for our members – I have every confidence that Cbus is well positioned to continue to be a strong performing fund of the future,” Ms Donohue said.

The structure of the investment team will be reviewed by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer over coming months.
