MyState snatches BNK boss

The chief of BNK’s banking business will depart to lead rival ASX-listed bank MyState.

Brett Morgan, chief executive of banking and wholesale at BNK Banking Corporation has filed his resignation, having accepted a CEO role at MyState.

Mr Morgan will have a transition period with the board of BNK for the next three months, before he takes the reins at MyState in January.

He will replace MyState CEO Melos Sulicich, who is set to step down from 31 December.

Mr Sulicich initially resigned in January 2020, but agreed to stay until September 2021 to guide the company through COVID-19.


BNK chair Don Koch thanked Mr Morgan for his contribution over the last 12 months.

“Whilst Brett has led BNK’s banking business for a relatively short period, one of his key achievements was establishing a strong executive team that has been behind the rapid business growth of the division,” Mr Koch said.

Previously, Mr Morgan held senior roles, including executive director, mortgages, with ING Direct, having worked with the company for 15 years.

He had also been country head, branch banking, marketing and private clients at ING Vysya Bank in India (40 per cent owned by ING Group).

He returned to Australia in 2014, where he took up divisional CEO roles with technology firm Inloop.
