Heritage Bank has announced that its long-serving chairman, Brian Carter, will retire.

Mr Carter will step down as chairman and as a director after the monthly board meeting in June, which will bring an end his 37-year career with Heritage.

At the age of 70 and after the successful name transition to Heritage Bank in December last year, Mr Carter felt this was the appropriate time to stand aside.


He said he was very proud of the reputation and integrity of Heritage Bank, especially after winning the Canstar Blue 2012 Challenger Bank Award for customer satisfaction.

 “But perhaps the thing that makes me most proud is that Heritage started in Toowoomba, has remained in Toowoomba, and will remain in Toowoomba,” he said.

 “The board that I leave behind is first class and I am sure the new leadership team will guide Heritage Bank to even bigger and better things moving forward,” Mr Carter said.

Kerry Betros will take over as the new Chairman of Directors from June.

Mr Betros said he was humbled and honoured at the appointment.

“Heritage is a much-admired organisation that has prospered under the leadership of Brian Carter and I intend to protect and enhance that legacy,” Mr Betros said.
