BOQ director to step down

— 1 minute read

A wealth management and banking veteran is set to depart from the Bank of Queensland board after nine years with the group.

Non-executive director Michelle Tredenick will leave the board at the conclusion of the bank’s 2020 annual general meeting in December. 

Ms Tredenick was appointed to the board in February 2011, later that year becoming the chair of the information technology committee. 


BOQ chairman Patrick Allaway said she had made a significant contribution to the bank during her term.

“In particular, we would like to acknowledge her role as chair of the information technology committee where she has provided guidance and oversight of the delivery of phase one of the Virgin Money Australia digital bank and BOQ’s core infrastructure cloud modernisation, key planks of our digital transformation,” Mr Allaway said.

“We would also like to acknowledge Michelle’s significant governance experience and contribution over many years as a member of each of the people, culture and remuneration; risk; audit; and nomination and governance committees.”

Ms Tredenick noted she had commenced her director career with BOQ. She is a non-executive director on a number of other company boards, including First Sentier Investors, Insurance Australia Group and Cricket Australia. 

Ms Tredenick only joined the First Sentier board in June. 

She previously held senior roles across the wealth management, banking and insurance industries, having been a chief information officer at NAB, chief executive of corporate superannuation at MLC and group CIO at Suncorp.
