Oct. 3 (BusinessDesk) - ANZ Bank New Zealand's chief economist Cameron Bagrie has resigned after more than a decade in the role.
Bagrie told BusinessDesk he will stay with the bank while it recruits a replacement and it will be "business as usual - I'll be sticking around for a bit, not a long time, but I'm certainly not out the door immediately." He has been with the bank since 1999, including his time at the National Bank which was later bought by ANZ. He worked at the Treasury before then.
"It's been eleven-and-a-half years, it's time for the old dog to step aside and the young pup to step up," Bagrie said. "I think we've got some strong internal candidates for the job."
Bagrie said his priority for the rest of the year is to get fit and healthy and spend time with his children, "and then I'll see what 2018 brings."
