Leadership

Francesca Rush, QSuper

Secretary

Fran is a finance lawyer, with 30 years’ experience.

Until recently Fran was a partner of Australian legal firm Clayton Utz and acted for government, corporate, bank, lessors and other financial services clients in relation to asset and project structuring, finance and lending related issues. At times during her 19 years at the firm she led the national Banking & Financial Services team and managed key client relationships including for ANZ and AMP.

In 2019 Fran moved to an in-house Associate General Counsel role at QSuper to pursue more strategic client-side opportunities. In this role she supports the business on its strategic growth initiatives and on day to day issues relevant to its superannuation and life insurance businesses.

As a result of this experience, Fran has an appreciation of the opportunities for advancement of women in our industry and our responsibilities to those who are starting out their careers in the industry.

Since 2014 Fran has served on WiBF’s Finance, Risk and Governance committee. In 2017 she joined the WiBF board and now holds the office of Secretary.
