Bank welcomes new director

One of Australia’s regional banks has announced the appointment of a new non-executive director.

Jan Harris joins Bendigo and Adelaide Bank with broad experience in the Australian public service sector, having held senior roles at the Treasury and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank chairman Robert Johnson said Ms Harris’ “exceptional” experience across finance, markets and government, including the formation of public policy, will bring additional breadth and balance to the board.

“Until her recent retirement from the public service, Jan was a member of the Council of Financial Regulators, the Centre for International Finance and Regulation, the Financial Sector Advisory Committee and [on] the board of the Australian Reinsurance Committee of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation,” Mr Johnson said.

Meanwhile, Bank of Queensland (BOQ) has appointed former Citi executive John Lorimer as it new non-executive director.

BOQ chairman Roger Davis said Mr Lorimer brings with him expertise in retail financial services, governance and oversight, and regulation and risk management.

“I am delighted to welcome John to the BOQ board. His considerable experience managing consumer financial services businesses around the world will be invaluable as our bank and the wider industry adapts to the rapidly changing competitive and regulatory environment,” he said.
