ANZ shakes up tech ops

08 September 2016  |  4494 views  |  0 ANZ

ANZ is shaking up technology reporting lines, giving the IT division a direct link to the chief executive and broader input and control from divisional business units.

The changes follow a planned move for group chief operating officer Alistair Currie to step down from the Australian bank later this year, with CIO Scott Collary taking over responsibility for shared services.

Currie's departure will open the way for a direct reporting line to CEO Shayne Elliott, "reinforcing technology’s strategic role alongside digital banking," says the bank.

The change at the top is mirrored in a reshuffle further down the pack, which will see divisional chief operating officers taking over greater end-to-end control of customer processes as well as driving the next phase of productivity gains.

Deputy CEO Graham Hodges will assume responsibility for group hubs, enterprise services and group property, while Nigel Dobson will take on wholesale digital strategy and payments transformation, reporting to digital banking lead Maile Carnegie.

The recently-installed ANZ boss Elliott has publicly declared that his legacy will be the digital transformation of the Australian bank. One of his first acts since taking over the CEO's chair was a shake up of senior management and the creation of a new role for a digital banking group executive, installing former Googler Carnegie in the position.

Commenting on the latest overhaul, he says: “These changes to our operating model better support ANZ’s strategic priorities and allow us to build on the significant progress that has been made in recent years in Technology, Operations and Shared Services."
