Bankwest has announced the appointment of Sinead Taylor as the first female to lead the organisation in its 124-year history.
“Sinead has a clear focus on improving customers’ financial wellbeing,” Mr Sullivan said.
“I have no doubt she will continue this focus in her new role, leading a business that has strengthened under the stewardship of Rowan (Munchenberg) and his team.”
Ms Taylor said the company is in a strong position to continue to meet the changing needs of its customers and grow the brand and business in WA and nationwide.
“We’re sending a clear signal of our intent to be bold and different in our customer focus with innovations such as the Bankwest Halo ring, in-app messaging, home loan digital signing, a multi-year Bankwest Stadium partnership in Western Sydney and our Bank Less brand positioning,” she said.
“We intend to maintain our 124-year support for the prosperity of the communities and economy of WA through key partnerships and sponsorships.”
Mr Munchenberg, who stepped down as managing director to explore new opportunities, said now was the right time for a new leader.
“We’ve refocused Bankwest to ensure customer needs remain at our core in today’s rapidly changing digital world," he said.
