The Commonwealth Bank (CBA) is appointing the former chief executive of CBA-bought technology group, TYME as its new group executive international financial services.
Coen Jonker would take on the role in place of Rob Jesudason, who would commence in the new position of chief financial officer from 1 July. Commenting on the appointment, CBA chief executive, Ian Narev said Jonker’s experience on the bank’s International Financial Services leadership team had placed him as an attractive candidate for the position.
“In his current role, he has successfully led the team that has designed, built and now operates a new model for retail banking in emerging markets. In addition, he has demonstrated strong values, and shown himself to be an inclusive leader,” Narev said.
“Coen’s insight into how digital technologies can transform the traditional retail and small business banking model was evident when he joined CBA.
“He has deep banking experience, as well as a track record as a fintech entrepreneur.”
