St George today announced that BankSA’s Rob Chapman will lead St George onward as its new chief executive officer with existing CEO Greg Bartlett to step down on 1 December this year.
Mr Chapman will resign from his current position as the CEO of BankSA, which he has held for over eight years, to take on the new role.
Westpac chief executive officer Gail Kelly said Mr Chapman’s deep multi-brand expertise at St George and BankSA, combined with exceptional banking and commercial acumen, made him an “ideal appointment”.
“We are very fortunate to have an executive of Rob’s calibre ready to step into the role as St George’s CEO,” Ms Kelly said.
The new chief executive for BankSA will be announced shortly, according to a statement.
