ANZ CFO departs

Executive Move


ANZ chief financial officer Michelle Jablko has left the organisation and the financial services industry. She is set to start the new year as the chief financial officer for ASX-listed toll road operator Transurban.

Jablko joined ANZ in mid-2016 as chief financial officer and was appointed a director of ANZ New Zealand in 2018.

ANZ CEO Shayne Elliott said he's disappointed that Jablko is leaving but wishes her the best in her new role. "Michelle can be incredibly proud of all she has achieved at ANZ. As a highly strategic CFO, she has transformed our finance function while also being instrumental in the simplification and strengthening of our organisation. She will always remain a good friend of the bank and I personally thank her for her considerable contribution over the past four and a half years."

Jablko began her career as a lawyer at Allens and moved into finance as a managing director at UBS. Before joining ANZ, she held a senior management role at investment bank Greenhill.

"It was an incredibly tough decision to leave ANZ, however I am looking forward to putting my experience to use in another industry," said Jablko. "I've thoroughly enjoyed working with Shayne and the broader team as well as playing a role in the bank's continued success. I'm particularly proud of the work we have done to strengthen and simplify the bank as well as the highly capable finance function we have built over the last few years. I know the team will continue to do a great job for ANZ's shareholders and customers."

The bank is currently recruiting for a new CFO.
