The Commonwealth Bank has appointed Coen Jonker as group executive for international financial services.
Coen Jonker, who is based in Hong Kong, replaces Rob Jesudason who will commence his new role as CBA's chief financial officer from 1 July 2017 (replacing the departing David Craig).
Mr Jonker, who is currently a group executive in the bank's international financial services team, was the co-founder and chief executive of the technology company TYME which was acquired by CBA in 2015.
Commenting on Mr Jonker's appointment, CBA chief executive Ian Narev said he has "deep banking experience" and a "track record as a fintech entrepreneur".
