Former NSW premier Mike Baird to join NAB

Former NSW premier and treasurer Mike Baird has joined NAB as chief customer officer, corporate and institutional banking.  


In a statement to the ASX, NAB CEO Andrew Thorburn announced three new appointments to its leadership team.

Alongside Mr Baird, the bank has also recruited Sharon Cook to the role of chief legal and commercial counsel and Patrick Wright to the role of chief technology and operations officer.

Mr Baird started his career with NAB and spent 17 years in institutional banking before going into politics.

“His time as treasurer and premier of New South Wales means he returns to banking and NAB with invaluable experience in leading economic and financial reform to grow the economy,” Mr Thorburn said.

“Mike has outstanding leadership and a determination to drive change and make a difference by building relationships with customers and the community.”

Mr Wright joins from Barclays in the United States, while Ms Cook was formerly managing partner of Henry Davis York.
