Long-serving NAB executive to retire

The major bank has revealed changes to its executive team as its long-serving group chief digital, data, and analytics officer retires.

National Australia Bank (NAB) has announced that its group chief digital, data, and analytics officer Angela Mentis will retire on 1 November after more than 17 years of service.

Ms Mentis joined NAB from BT Financial Group in 2006, becoming general manager, specialised investments. Over the years, she worked her way up to become chief customer officer, business and private banking in 2016.

In 2018, she was appointed managing director and chief executive of NAB-owned Bank of New Zealand before moving back to the big four bank in 2021 and taking on her current role.

NAB’s current group chief operating officer Les Matheson will be appointed group executive digital, data, and chief operating officer once Ms Mentis retires.

Group CEO Ross McEwan said Ms Mentis was an “exceptional banker and leader who inspired colleagues working alongside her”.

He commented: “Angie has always shown what it means to put customers first and has delivered outstanding results by doing that very well during her career.

“I am sorry to lose Angie but accept and understand her decision to retire from full-time executive roles and spend more time with her family, who she cares for deeply.

“Angie will be missed at NAB and by many customers she has served during her time with the bank.”

Ms Mentis first started her career at Macquarie Bank and held senior positions at Westpac and Citibank Limited.

The major bank said Mr Matheson would have an expanded role as he takes up his new position, becoming accountable for the digital, data, and analytics division as well as ubank, group marketing and product improvement and governance.

Mr McEwan added: “Les’ global experience and leadership will be invaluable in creating solutions for customers and colleagues.”

NAB stated Mr Matheson’s appointment in the expanded role will be effective 1 November 2023, subject to regulatory approvals.

He first joined NAB in 2021 after moving from the NatWest Group in the United Kingdom.
