CBA makes acting CFO permanent

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) has appointed acting chief financial officer, Alan Docherty, to the role permanently.

Docherty was previously CFO of the institutional banking and markets division, and held senior roles in group finance, group treasury and business and private bank, as well as roles at PwC and EY.

CBA chief executive, Matt Comyn, said Docherty’s extensive knowledge of the group and experience in financial services made him the right choice for the role, particularly when coupled with his contribution to the executive leadership team in his time as acting CFO.

“Having worked in both the UK and Australia, as well as across all the major divisions of CBA since 2003, Alan has deep and extensive knowledge of our business combined with a clear customer focus,” Comyn said.
