New CEO appointed to New Zealand Bankers’ Association

Roger Beaumont has today been named as Chief Executive of the New Zealand Bankers’ Association, the organisation that represents the New Zealand banking industry.

NZBA Chair David McLean, CEO of Westpac, says they are delighted to have been able to appoint someone with such strong credentials in both the banking sector and stakeholder management area, which Roger possesses.

“Roger has an extensive career at an executive level in banking, corporate affairs and media, and is extremely well respected within both the public and private sectors of New Zealand, which is important in a role such as this.”

David McLean also acknowledges the superb job done by current Acting Chief Executive Antony Buick-Constable.

“Antony and the team have worked through a number of serious issues and reviews in recent times, and I particularly want to acknowledge the work they have done in the area of financial inclusion.

“The banking industry as a whole is facing many ongoing challenges around competition, regulation and cyber security. The Bankers’ Association has an extremely important job to do to ensure all stakeholders, and customers have confidence in the work we undertake.”

Roger Beaumont will take up his new position on 21 January 2019.
