Ms Petschler acknowledged the support of the board and members during her time as CEO and paid tribute to the professional COBA team.

“It has been my privilege to serve as COBA’s CEO. For a supporter of customer owned banking and its potential, there is no more challenging or rewarding role,” she said.

Ms Petschler will finish at COBA on August 8.
