The Australian Banking Association (ABA) council has appointed Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) chief executive Matt Comyn as chair, and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank chief executive Marnie Baker as deputy chair.
Comyn said the ABA played an important role in the industry and would continue to do so as the industry sought to earn back the trust of the Australian public.
“The industry is working hard to improve customer outcomes, implement the Royal Commission and other regulatory changes, and align the Government’s objectives to grow the economy,” Comyn said.
“I look forward to working with ABA members to help drive change across the industry so that it can earn back the trust of the Australian people and continue to be an important pillar of the community and economy.”
Baker said she looked forward to helping drive and embed change across the industry and every member of the ABA had an important role to drive prosperity for all Australians.
The council thanked the outgoing chair, Shayne Elliot and deputy chair, David Carter for their leadership of the industry during their tenure.
