“David and his technology and operations teams will build on the Group's extensive investments in technology to ensure on-going innovation for our customers, and continuing productivity, reliability and security."

Prior to joining CBA Mr Whiteing was Vice President of Enterprise Systems at BP in the United Kingdom.

He will commence his new role on 14 July 2014.
