Head of Institution Bank, WA / Westpac Banking Corporation
Caroline Chan has varied experience across strategy, business management, relationship management and credit analysis. As Head of Westpac’s Institutional Bank, which supports WA through $8bn of loans and deposits, Ms Chan has broken the mould. As she says, she is no “typical Caucasian male with silver highlights”. From a Malaysian immigrant family, Ms Chan worked hard to get her start, has a double major in law and commerce from UWA, worked with Rothschilds and then Westpac, all while balancing family (she has two boys) and her rapid rise through the ranks.
