American Express joins NZBA as affiliate member

The New Zealand Bankers’ Association today welcomed American Express as its latest affiliate member.

“We are delighted to have American Express join us as an affiliate member,” says New Zealand Bankers’ Association Chief Executive Karen Scott-Howman.

“Affiliate members work closely with the banking sector. This affirms the commitment American Express, as a global financial services provider, makes to our industry.”

American Express Vice President, Public Affairs & Communications – Australia and New Zealand Jon Stewart says, “American Express has a long and proud history facilitating international trade and supporting growth in the New Zealand economy.

“We look forward to working with the New Zealand Bankers’ Association and the wider banking industry to continue supporting New Zealand’s economic success.”

Affiliate membership allows NZBA to formalise relationships it has with complementary organisations that are involved with the banking industry in New Zealand.

As the voice of the banking industry, the New Zealand Bankers’ Association provides a forum for its 17 members to work together on non-competitive industry issues. The Association now has nine affiliate members.
