Australian Military Bank
An experienced CEO with a track record of delivering strong organic growth and innovation in consecutive roles.
Strong strategy and marketing background drives me to “an outside in approach” to ensure the customer is at the forefront of considerations. I also enjoy challenging the status quo and inspiring my team to continually improve in a competitive environment. Our recent banking system conversion was driven by our desire to become a modern, nimble and ultimately successful niche bank.
Having worked for a variety of listed banks (e.g. Suncorp / St.George), insurance companies (Suncorp / GIO), building societies and credit unions I gain great satisfaction from leading a member owned organisation with a clear commitment to serving the Defence community.
Outside of my Australian Military Bank role I am a director of Shared Lending Pty Ltd which provides a platform to support the syndication of mortgage loans.
In addition to financial services. I have a passion for agriculture and producing beef cattle. It’s a cathartic experience.
