NAB business and private banking customer chief resigns

Executive Position


NAB's chief customer officer for business and private banking, Anthony Healy, has resigned from the organisation.

“Anthony has been recognised for his strong customer focus, innovation and market leading results. He has been a champion for supporting our small to medium enterprises, the engine room of the Australian economy, and the development of regional and rural Australia,” NAB CEO Ross McEwan said.

“He has been a key member of NAB’s executive leadership team through a challenging period and I have valued his support since I joined NAB. I wish him well for the future.”

Healy is the another high-profile departure from NAB's retail banking business in recent months, including the head of consumer banking and former NSW Premier Mike Baird.

Healy joined NAB from Bank of New Zealand, a NAB subsidiary, where he was the CEO and managing director from 2014-2017. He has experience as a director with JB Were (NZ) and was the head of NSW banking business for ANZ.

"I’m proud of the businesses which I have been a part of building in Australia and New Zealand. We play such an important role for the people and communities that we serve," said Healy.

"I am confident that under Ross’ leadership, NAB will continue to thrive in a challenging banking environment. Now is the right time for me to consider what the next 10 years look like, professionally and personally."

NAB has announced that chief risk officer Michael Saadie will fill the chief customer officer role while they search for a permanent replacement.
