BOQ chairman Roger Davis said Ms Penrose brings specialist knowledge in finance and capital markets, risk management and compliance to the bank’s board.

“Given how quickly the market is changing, it’s important that we continue to evolve as a board to ensure we have the appropriate mix of skills and experience to manage the significant responsibilities of an APRA-supervised financial institution,” he said.
