High profile Western Australian director Tony Howarth has been appointed deputy chairman of Bank of Queensland, which announced a series of board changes today.

Mr Howarth, former chairman of Home Building Society before it was taken over by BOQ, will take over from Tony Love.

"The appointment of Tony Howarth as Deputy Chairman will capitalise on Mr Howarth's
experience as Chairman of the former Home Building Society in West Australia and reflects the Bank's continued focus on the growing West Australian economy," said new BOQ chairman Neil Summerson.

"Tony Love has done a great job as Deputy Chairman, but has decided to step down from this position and enable Tony Howarth to take the reigns and drive the Bank's focus on the growing WA market."

Mr Summerson takes over from retiring chairman Neil Roberts, who has been with BOQ for 21 years and chaired the company for 13 years.

Meanwhile managing director David Liddy has extended his contract until 2011 and Roger Davis has also been appointed to the board.
