icare Chair John Robertson has announced the appointment of Kirsten Armstrong to the icare Board, following the retirement of Peeyush Gupta as a non-executive director.

Mr Robertson said: "Kirsten brings significant experience as an actuary and strategic adviser with a 25-year career in health, disability, social insurance and international development. Kirsten has a deep understanding of the health and disability sector, with previous experience advising governments in Australia and internationally on major reforms."

Kirsten currently leads the Health Practice at Taylor Fry consultants, where she focuses on building better health systems and creating social impact by bringing evidence, insights and new ways of thinking to government, businesses and not-for-profits.

She is also the Chief Editor of Actuaries Digital, was previously a Partner at PwC and an Executive at The Fred Hollows Foundation, where she led the launch of the world's first development impact bonds.

Mr Robertson also thanked Mr Gupta for his contribution to icare.

"I would like to thank Peeyush Gupta for the contribution and impact he has had on icare. Peeyush joined the icare Board in 2015 and, during this time, has chaired the Investment and Asset Committee and been a member of the Technology and Data Strategy Committee. I wish Peeyush all the best with his next step."
