ME Bank adds to board

Executive Move


Former Westpac chief operating officer John Arthur has joined the board of ME Bank.

Arthur retired from his executive role in 2016 and has since held directorships with Australian Funds Management, CSR, and Investa Property Group. He's also currently the chair of Sydney Metro.

"John is a highly experienced and respected leader and comes to us with a wealth of banking and management experience," said ME Bank chair James Evans. "He has a demonstrated track record of leading growth and transformation projects that create long term sustainable value for customers and stakeholders, for some of Australia's largest financial services businesses."

Arthur is joined on the board by former Cbus chief executive and current AMP Captial deputy CEO David Atkin. "Both new appointees will bring decades of experience and leadership to the Board and will add significant value as we continue to deliver on ME's promise to help people get ahead, in what is a time of significant change for the banking industry in Australia," said Evans.

One of the positions is new, the other replaces John Nesbitt, who retired after nearly four years on the bank's board.
