ANZ appoints two new C-suite execs

ANZ has announced the appointment of a new Melbourne-based chief information officer and announced the head of its China operations.

Former Citigroup chief information officer for consumer North America and global cards Scott Collary has been appointed chief information officer at ANZ.

Mr Collary is expected to commence his role at ANZ in early December 2014, following the necessary approvals.

In his previous role at Citigroup Mr Collary was responsible for all aspects of consumer banking technology.

He led large transformation programs at Citigroup North America, simplified products and introduced a digital first technology strategy, according to ANZ.

Previously he also held positions at US regional bank Fifth Third and Bank of America.

ANZ group chief operating officer Alistair Currie said Mr Collary brings with him a track record in leading large global teams and driving culture that is innovative and customer-centric.

“Scott has particular experience in leading large-scale digital technology programs and will have a key leadership role in continuing ANZ’s transformation to become the most compelling, most convenient and easiest bank to use for all customers whether big, small, retail or corporate,” he said.

Meanwhile, Huang Xiaoguang has been appointed as chief executive of China by ANZ and will also serve as head of greater China.

He will report to ANZ chief executive of international banking Farhan Faruqui, and will be responsible for capturing trade and investment flows within greater China.

ANZ chief risk officer of China, Hong Swee Lau, will continue to act as chief executive of China until Mr Huang joins in January next year.

Mr Huang joins ANZ from Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML), where he was president of Bank America from 2010 to 2014 and was recently appointed as co-head of global corporate and investment banking for BAML China.

He has also held roles at ABN AMRO and Citigroup.

ANZ chief executive of international and institutional banking Andrew Géczy said the appointment of a career banker of Mr Huang’s calibre is another example of the progress ANZ has made in “building a strong franchise”.

“I’m confident his extensive international experience will benefit our customers doing business across Asia Pacific,” said Mr Géczy.

Mr Faruqui said Mr Huang has an impressive track record in building and leading institutional banks in China and has the right credentials to “help drive greater connectivity within Greater China, where trade and investment flows are already substantial and growing”.
