Prime Super has appointed Jaqueline Kelly, CEO of the Lutheran Care Community, to its board of directors. Prime Super said Ms Kelly was the second appointee to the board with knowledge of the health and aged care industries, in recognition of the fund’s merger with Health Industry Plan (HIP) in May 2014.

Lutheran Care Community (LCC) offers 18 services and provides accommodation, aged care, youth, disability, mental health, and chaplaincy services.

Prior to joining LCC, Ms Kelly has had more than 20 years’ experience across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors including senior roles at PricewaterhouseCoopers, Queensland Treasury and Lend Lease Advisor Services.

“We are pleased to have Jaqueline join our board,” said Alan Bowman, chairman of Prime Super. “Not only does she have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the aged care industry and commercial life, her commitment to ensuring all Australians have the opportunity to age well and live dignified lives as valued members of the community, makes her a perfect fit for Prime Super.”
