NAB appoints new executive

The bank has appointed an industry veteran with 25 years’ experience as its new head of business and private banking.

Andrew Irvine will step into the role of NAB’s new group executive for business and private banking, and joins the bank from Bank of Montreal where he led the Canadian business banking division. He will be a member of the NAB executive leadership team.

“Andrew is an experienced banker and talented leader who will play a crucial role focused on NAB’s strategic pillars of delivering for customers and colleagues,” said chief executive Ross McEwan.

“We have an ambition to grow our market-leading business bank by helping our customers grow.


“Andrew’s deep understanding of customers developed over a career in banking and his leadership in using data, insights and technology to meet their needs will be important to achieving this ambition.”

Mr Irvine will start at NAB on 1 September. He has held a number of executive roles with the Bank of Montreal, most recently as head of Canadian business banking. He has also served as head of customer solutions, and has worked at McKinsey & Company as an associate principal in Toronto and an investment banker in London.

“I’m excited to be joining NAB and to be leading business and private banking, which at its core is all about supporting its customers and the broader economy,” Mr Irvine said.

“I look forward to working with my colleagues at NAB to grow these foundations as we help our customers through the impacts of COVID-19 and out the other side.”
