Monday 1 July, 2019.

Appointed in December last year, Bernadette Inglis brings impressive experience from roles in financial services giants, including her most recent position, Group General Manager of Westpac’s Retail & Premium Bank.

“I’ve already experienced a warm reception from the Board and Executive Management team, and I’m excited to meet the rest of the team shortly.
