NAB announces executive departure

National Australia Bank's chief people officer is leaving the organisation.

Lorraine Murphy has resigned as chief people officer at NAB. Murphy joined NAB in March 2016 and has 20 years' experience across multiple industries.

The role will be temporarily filled by Julie Rynski, currently customer executive regional and agribusiness, while NAB looks for a permanent replacement.

NAB Group chief executive Philip Chronican said Murphy has led her department through a very challenging period and brought a useful perspective on changing bank culture.

Chronican said: "Building a truly customer-centric culture is more important than ever and Lorraine and her team have laid the foundations for us.

"She has rebuilt the function from the ground up with structure, policies and process to best support the organisation."

Rynski has more than 30 years of banking experience including two years as head of human resources for Westpac's Pacific region. She will assume the role after relevant regulatory approvals are obtained.
