She began her career at Westpac Retail Bank, where she held distribution, strategy, marketing/product management roles and corporate advisory, wealth management, and mortgage originator roles at Microsoft.

She has served as a non-executive director in both publicly listed and private companies and has been a technology entrepreneur, building a start-up in New York, BNK Bank said.

Ms Aris will offer herself for election by shareholders at BNK’s 2021 annual general meeting (AGM), the non-major bank added.

Commenting on Ms Aris’ appointment, BNK chairman Jon Sutton said that he was pleased to welcome her to the board, and added that he was looking forward to her contribution to the group.

He said: “Elizabeth’s extensive and diverse career as an executive has spanned banking, telecommunications and technology.
