The Australian Banking Association Council has appointed CBA chief Matt Comyn as chair, alongside Bendigo and Adelaide Bank managing director Marnie Baker as its new deputy chair.
The pair has replaced outgoing chair, ANZ boss Shayne Elliott and deputy chair, David Carter, Suncorp’s banking and wealth chief executive.
After the appointment was made at the ABA’s annual meeting, Mr Comyn said the association played an important role in the industry and would continue to do so as banks seek to earn the trust of the Australian public.
“The industry is working hard to improve customer outcomes, implement the royal commission and other regulatory changes, and align the government’s objectives to grow the economy,” Mr Comyn said.
“I look forward to working with ABA members to help drive change across the industry so that it can earn back the trust of the Australian people and continue to be an important pillar of the community and economy.”
Ms Baker said she looked forward to the new role and helping to drive change across the sector.
“Every member of the Australian Banking Association has an important role to drive prosperity for all Australians,” she said.
