New director appointment continues board renewal
The Board of Bendigo Bank today approved the appointment of insurance and financial services executive Tony Robinson as a new director to the board.
Chairman Robert Johanson said Mr Robinson’s appointment continued the board renewal process announced on 31 October 2005 and follows the appointment of Ms Deborah Radford in February and the recent handover of the chairmanship, after 19 years in the role, from Mr Richard Guy to Mr Johanson.
Mr Robinson, 48, is currently managing director of the publicly listed company OAMPS Limited, which provides broking and financial services for insurance; risk management; workers' compensation and occupation health & safety; financial planning services; and superannuation. He is also a director of VECCI.
Mr Robinson’s previous management positions include joint managing director of Falkiners Stockbroking, managing director of WealthPoint, chief financial officer of Link Telecommunications and general manager corporate services at Mayne Nickless.
Mr Johanson said Mr Robinson brought to Bendigo additional depth and breadth of corporate experience that would be valuable as the Bank sought to capitalise on the investments made in its distribution network, product range and infrastructure over the past decade.
