Taviri leaves superfund board, joins Kina Bank


LESIELI Taviri has stepped down from Nambawan Super board after accepting a new executive leadership position with Kina Bank.
This was announced by Nambawan Super chairman Reg Monagi last Friday.
According to the superfund, Kina Bank is one of Nambawan Super’s key local service providers, providing both licensed investment management and fund administration services to the fund.
“Taviri resigned due to the conflict of interest that arose following her appointment to Kina Bank as executive general manager of banking,” Monagi said.
He said Taviri had been a trustee director for Nambawan Super since 2014.
“She has played a key role in the fund’s transformation over the past six years, bringing strategic oversight and guidance to a broad range of initiatives that have been critical to the fund’s modernisation and progression from a Government department to a private organisation,” he said.
“Taviri has been an energetic and committed board member, who progressed to the position of deputy chairperson and chair of the transformation committee that oversaw key strategy and innovation programmes.
“I believe she will bring great skills and experience to her new role.”
Following the resignation, the board of trustees has a vacant position, and were deciding how and when to proceed to filling the role with an appropriately skilled, board-ready professional.
Nambawan Super is servicing more than 200,000 members, with more than K8 billion in funds under management.
