“Stewart is an experienced banker and brings with him a diverse background that covers technical financial experience and project management, as well as business development and broker distribution.”

Mr Whitechurch said Mr Saunders will be responsible for broker sales, but will also play a key role in the development of Bankwest’s retail banking strategy.

Mr Saunders said he was extremely excited about joining Bankwest and the future opportunities it will bring.

“What attracted me to Bankwest was the dynamic nature of the organisation and the culture – it’s great to have a business that’s truly focused on its customers and wants to make their banking easier,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to joining such a talented broker team and providing great customer service to brokers at an exciting and challenging time in the current market.


“There’s also a fantastic leadership team at the organisation, which I’m excited to contribute to and learn from and develop as part of that broader senior leadership group.”
