Legal head at Guardians of NZ Superannuation gets bumped up to leadership role

Crown entity Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation has bumped legal head Cristina Billett to a leadership role as general manager corporate affairs.

Billett has led the legal team since 2015 – in her new role, she will oversee the board secretariat as well as both the legal and communications teams.

CEO Matt Whineray said that Billett brings to the leadership team extensive commercial and transactional legal experience. He praised her familiarity with the Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation, the New Zealand Super Fund and the Elevate Fund.

Billett first joined Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation in 2009. Previously, she was a private practitioner in New Zealand and Australia, and also logged in-house experience as group legal counsel at a financial services company.

At present, she also chairs the Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation’s risk committee. She took up the general manager corporate affairs position last Thursday, reporting to Whineray.

The Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation oversees the $55bn New Zealand Super Fund and the Elevate NZ Venture Fund.
