The prudential regulator has named former NAB executive Mark Adams as its new executive general manager for the specialised institutions division.
Mr Adams worked at NAB for 17 years and held numerous senior positions with the bank before leaving to join the technology sector in a consulting capacity.
APRA chairman Wayne Byres said Mr Adams will be a welcome addition to the regulator’s team.
