The ASX has announced that David Curran has been appointed to its board as a non-executive director effective immediately.
Mr Curran has over 30 years of corporate technology experience including as chief information officer at Westpac between 2014 and 2019.
He previously held executive technology roles at the Commonwealth Bank, leading the bank’s technology transformation including the modernisation of deposit and lending capabilities.
Commenting on Mr Curran’s appointment, ASX chairman Damian Roche said that strengthening the technology, cyber security and project management expertise of the ASX board had been one of his areas of focus.
“Dave’s experience leading digital transformations to deliver customer-focused solutions, knowledge of new and emerging technologies, and desire to see Australia realise its potential as a world-class technology centre bring both practical and strategic perspectives to ASX,” he said.
“These attributes, along with his ability to combine technology, business and customer views, give him deep insights into Australia’s corporate, technology, political and regulatory environment and will help ensure we stay ahead of ASX’s and our customers’ evolving needs.”
Alongside his experience implementing projects across banking and financial services in Australia, Mr Curran is also chair of the Westpac Scholars Trust and a board member of the cancer research, support and education charity Tour de Cure.
He will stand for election at ASX’s annual general meeting on 28 September.
