NAB group finance exec resigns

National Australia Bank’s group executive of finance and strategy has resigned after less than three years in the role.

In a statement to the ASX, the major bank announced that Craig Drummond will step down from the role on 15 March.

NAB chief executive Andrew Thorburn thanked Mr Drummond for his two-and-a-half year tenure, which saw him involved in the bank’s exit from the UK and the sale of its life insurance business.

“It is with disappointment that I announce Craig Drummond’s resignation. I am incredibly appreciative of what he has done for NAB. During Craig’s tenure, NAB has been through a period of significant change, and Craig has been pivotal to this,” he said.

“Over the last [two-and-a-half] years, Craig has led NAB’s exit of Great Western Bank, the sale of the UK Commercial Real Estate and SGA portfolios, the 80 per cent sale of the life insurance business, the demerger and IPO of CYBG and the largest capital raising in Australian corporate history.

“He has also been instrumental in the implementation of NAB’s Performance Unit framework, which has led to greater transparency and alignment across our organisation.”

At the same time, NAB announced that the bank’s executive general manager finance, Gary Lennon, has been appointed to the role of chief financial officer.

“Following the resignation of Mr Drummond, the group strategy function will now report directly to Mr Thorburn. Gary Lennon will commence in the role of chief financial officer on 15 March 2016, which will also be Mr Drummond’s final day at NAB,” the ASX statement said.
