SuperConcepts appoints Craig Stone as General Manager – Quality and Technical Services

SuperConcepts is bolstering its team of experts with the hire of Craig Stone (pictured) as General Manager – Quality and Technical Services. The appointment underscores the company’s ongoing growth story, cultivating a team with deep technical knowledge as part of its unique client proposition.

With over 25 years of experience in the accounting, tax and superannuation industries, Craig has established himself as a respected specialist in the SMSF space. Prior to joining SuperConcepts, Craig served in senior positions at leading accounting firms, most recently having managed accounting and tax strategy of SMSFs at Hood Sweeney.

In his Adelaide-based new role, Craig will work closely with the company’s experienced and well-regarded management team, consisting of Matthew Rowe, Managing Director, along with Chief Operating Officer, Brad Ackermann, and Executive Director of Client Services, Andrew Row. He is responsible for the oversight and management of the delivery of SMSF technical services to internal and external stakeholders, including trustees, advisers, and accountants.

Matthew Rowe reinforced the value in the addition of Craig, who began his tenure with SuperConcepts in August.

“We are thrilled to welcome Craig to the SuperConcepts team, and his appointment speaks to our focus on talent investment: bringing in people who have the expertise, skills and capacity to help us think differently about the future and build the business accordingly,” Rowe said.

“Craig is uniquely skilled at enabling the complex subjects of superannuation to be understood in a simple manner, and already in his short time at SuperConcepts he has led several client education-driven initiatives.

As someone both highly experienced and highly accomplished in his field of expertise, I am confident that Craig will make significant contributions in our ability to simplify SMSF to enable more Australians to control their super.”

Commenting on his new role, Craig Stone said, “I’m very excited to be a part of the dynamic team at SuperConcepts, all driven by the same goal: to increase quality outcomes to enhance customer’s SMSF experience.”

“As we witness a growing market demand for self-administration options beyond traditional superannuation funds, SuperConcepts provides an exciting opportunity to take part in a technology-led industry shift to empower more Australians.”
