BoQ combines CFO and COO roles with new appointment
(11 October 2019 – Australia) Non-big four Australian domestic bank BoQ has appointment a new chief financial officer and chief operating officer, following Max Baxby’s resignation in June.
Ewan Stafford will take over both CFO and COO roles, subject to regulatory approvals. While Mr Baxby is due to step down at the end of October, Mr Stafford’s start date is yet to be announced.
BoQ managing director and CEO George Frazis commented on Mr Stafford’s appointment to both roles, in light of his experience in both arenas.
“Ewen’s unique skillset of both financial management and operations means we can combine the chief financial officer and chief operating officer roles,” he said.
“Finance and operations are very closely aligned, so I am delighted to find someone who knows both well.”
