  • By AB+F Editorial

The Australian Banking Association appointed Commonwealth Bank CEO Matt Comyn as chair and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank managing director Marnie Baker as deputy chair.

Comyn and Baker will replace outgoing Chair, Shayne Elliott, and Deputy Chair, David Carter for their leadership of the industry during their tenure.

Comyn said the Australian Banking Association played an important role in the industry and would continue to do so as the industry seeks to earn back the trust of the Australian public.

“The industry is working hard to improve customer outcomes, implement the Royal Commission and other regulatory changes, and align the Government’s objectives to grow the economy,” Comyn said.

“I look forward to working with ABA members to help drive change across the industry so that it can earn back the trust of the Australian people and continue to be an important pillar of the community and economy,” he said.

Baker said she looked forward to the new role and helping drive and embed change across the industry.
