The major bank has named several new internal appointments to its executive team.
In a statement, NAB said current Bank of New Zealand managing director and chief executive Angela Mentis would move into the role of group chief digital, data and analytics officer for the major bank.
In addition, current Bank of New Zealand executive of customer, products and services Dan Huggins would move to become the new BNZ CEO and managing director.
NAB CEO Ross McEwan said Ms Mentis’ appointment was particularly significant as the bank looked to place a greater strategic importance on digital products and data optimisation.
“We are positioning NAB, our customer and our colleagues for an increasingly digital and automated world, leveraging the strength of our core banking businesses and the strong technology foundations we have in place,” Mr Mc Ewan said.
“Customer expectations continue to rise as competition drives innovation. That means we need to be delivering a digital experience for our personal and business customers that compares with the best experiences they have with any company, not just a bank.
“I look forward to working with Angie in this role. She has delivered outstanding results during her time at BNZ. Angie’s clear understanding of what customers and bankers need, coupled with her extensive knowledge of how a bank and its technology works, make her the ideal person to lead the acceleration of our digital and data agenda.”
Ms Mentis and Mr Huggins would commence their new roles on 1 October.
