Posted by Anton Murray Consulting on 10 Apr, 2024


The chair of one of Australia’s largest superannuation funds is set to be the country’s 28th governor-general and the second woman to hold the position. Samantha Mostyn AO has been named Australia’s next governor-general, succeeding David Hurley when she is sworn in on 1 July 2024. She will be the second woman to hold the position after Quentin Bryce’s appointment in 2008.

Announcing the role, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese noted Mostyn’s “exceptional” service to the Australian community. “Sam Mostyn is an exceptional leader who represents the best of modern Australia,” he told reporters in Canberra. “She has lived her life in the service of a powerful Australian principle. When more people have the opportunity to fulfil their potential, our nation is a better place.”
