In his new role, Mr Florian will be responsible for defining ANZ’s technology strategy as well as building and managing the group’s technology infrastructure.

“Gerard’s appointment, together with the appointment of Maile Carnegie as group executive digital banking earlier this year, highlights the critical importance of technology to transforming ANZ to compete effectively in the digital age,” Mr Elliott said.

“Increasingly, technology is redefining our business and our relationships with customers. Gerard’s leadership skills and his background in technology, including cloud computing, make him ideally suited to oversee the strategic shift that we need to make.”

Mr Florian will join the bank on 30 January 2017, with current chief information officer Scott Collary set to leave his position at the bank later this month.

“Scott has made a very strong contribution since he joined us in 2014. I thank him for his service and wish him every success in the future,” Mr Elliott said.
