Staff reporter 2 minute read

The lender announced last week that it has made an appointment to the newly-created position of chief executive officer for strategic innovation.

Suncorp CEO and managing director Michael Cameron announced on Thursday that the current Microsoft Australia managing director, Pip Marlow, will be joining the bank as the chief executive officer of strategic innovation.

As part of her role, Ms Marlow will be responsible for the bank’s strategic role in market disruption, as well as identifying, establishing and cultivating new external marketplace partners to meet customers’ needs.

Mr Cameron remarked that the appointment will help to accelerate the delivery of Suncorp’s customer strategy.

He said: “Pip is a highly-recognised leader in her field. She brings a wealth of international experience and has a strong track record of delivery, most recently through her role as managing director of Microsoft Australia.”


He added: “Her strong leadership will be pivotal to the success of our marketplace, our third-party relationships and the delivery of our customer strategy.”

“I am looking forward to the contribution that Pip will make to Suncorp and its many brands including AAMI, GIO, APIA and Shannons.”

Ms Marlow will join Suncorp in March 2017.
