NAB CEO Thorburn takes BNZ's Renee Roberts back to Australia

NAB boss Thorburn takes BNZ's Renee Roberts back to Australia

By Suze Metherell

Aug. 1 (BusinessDesk) - Andrew Thorburn, head of National Australia Bank, has lured Renee Roberts back to Australia, from her executive role with Bank of New Zealand to part of his new leadership team.

After three years as chief risk officer for BNZ, Roberts will return to Melbourne and parent bank, NAB, as group executive of enterprise services and transformation. Peter Thomas will act in Roberts' place, as BNZ looks for a permanent replacement, BNZ chief executive Anthony Healy said in a statement.

"During the past three years, Renee has completely transformed the culture of BNZ's risk function, championing the idea that all of BNZ's 5,500 people are risk managers," Healy said. "In her new role at NAB Renee will have responsibility for NAB's total enterprise transformation, including the NextGen core banking platform and simplifying processes."

Roberts will also oversee all Australia-based technology, operation and service functions for the lender, BNZ's Healy said.

Director of BNZ retail, Andy Symons, has been seconded to NA, for a project in global digital strategy and will report directly to Thorburn. Symons will be replaced by David Bullock in the meantime.

NAB chief executive Thorburn also added several new executive roles - Angela Mentis as head of business banking, Antony Cahill as head of product and markets, and David Gall as group risk officer.
