She will join ING DIRECT from Westpac Group, where she has spent over 16 years working across retail banking, wealth, broking, mortgages, business transformation, marketing and strategy.

Mr Sareen said the appointment comes at an exciting time for ING as it expands its business in Australia.

ING DIRECT has over $36 billion in retail savings and more than $42 billion in retail mortgages.
