Suncorp Bank (Suncorp) has today confirmed the appointment of Steven Degetto to the role of head of intermediaries.
Mr Degetto was tipped to succeed Steven Heavey who announced his departure from the bank in November last year. He has been acting in the role of head of intermediaries for the last three months.
As state manager of Intermediaries for Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia for Suncorp, Mr Degetto has been a key player in the bank’s intermediaries leadership team over the past two years.
According to a statement from the bank, Mr Degetto “has been heavily involved in strategy design, change implementation and the overall success of the intermediaries channel”.
Suncorp Bank’s executive general manager Danny Robinson said: “Steven is passionate about the third party industry and brings over 20 years banking experience to the role”.
“Steven will continue to deliver on the things that matter to our brokers, like our service guarantee, providing direct access to a credit assessor, real time online access to submitted applications and our expert BDM support,” Mr Robinson said.
Mr Degetto has previously held senior positions with Macquarie Bank and the Commonwealth Bank and is backed by significant experience in the third party distribution channel.
