ANZ Bank is looking for a new chief information officer (CIO) after shifting incumbent Peter Dalton to the newly created position of group general manager for innovation.
Following his sideways move, from January Dalton will report to Margaret Payn, group managing director, strategy, marketing and customer segmentation.
The bank told The Australian newspaper that in his new role Dalton will look at "integrating emerging technologies to deliver better business results across the bank".
Dalton joined ANZ in 1995 and was appointed CIO in August 2006 having previously worked as chief technologist in the personal division.
Until a replacement is appointed, Dalton's duties will be shared by David Cartwright, group MD, operations, technology and shared services and Kieran Griffiths, deputy CIO.
