ANZ pays tribute to Sir John Anderson


ANZ Bank New Zealand today paid tribute to former CEO Sir John Anderson, who passed away last night, and extended condolences to his family.

ANZ New Zealand CEO David Hisco said:

“Sir John Anderson had a long and successful career in New Zealand business, including being CEO of Southpac, The National Bank and ANZ National Bank.

“When ANZ bought The National Bank off Lloyds TSB in 2003 Sir John was that well respected he was asked to stay on and run the two banks.

“Sir John’s love of sport, particularly cricket, was legendary in the bank. We have him to thank for the bank’s long time and successful association with and sponsorship of New Zealand Cricket.

“I never worked with him but many staff still talk fondly of Sir John. They say he was compassionate, a good listener, had a sharp analytical mind and was decisive.

“He always talked about looking after the customer because if that was achieved the business couldn’t help but be successful. That’s a great legacy to leave future generations of leaders in our company and across New Zealand business.”
