Regional Australia Bank is pleased to announce the appointment of Julie Armstrong as the new Chief Information Officer, effective as of 9 May.
Julie brings extensive experience to the role, with over 25 years working across the Financial Services and Banking industry, including 15 years at ING Direct before moving to AMP as Director of Bank Operations, Chief Operations Officer at Cuscal Ltd & 86400, Chief Operations Officer at uno Home Loans and most recently the General Manager for New Republique - an experience optimisation consultancy specialising in UX design and conversion rate optimisation.
Regional Australia Bank Chief Executive Officer, David Heine, said while the position attracted a significant number of high-quality applicants, Julie’s extensive experience in building strong technology-driven customer value propositions made her a standout applicant.
“Julie is a talented leader and brings a creative pragmatism that will complement the skills around our executive table and nurture the talent we have within our technology team,” he said.
“There was an extensive selection process to secure the right person for this newly created role, and I believe Julie’s experience in leading transformational change, delivering on growth strategies and creating high performance teams that are focused on delivering strong customer and business outcomes aligns perfectly with the position.”
Incoming CIO, Julie Armstrong, said she was looking forward to taking on the role to provide strategic leadership to build and further enhance Regional Australia Bank’s IT-based functions.
“I am excited to work with David, the leadership team and all of the dedicated staff at Regional Australia Bank who have such a wonderful reputation within the industry and broader community,” she said.
