Restructure at the dragon
Written on the 16 October 2009
ST George has appointed managing directors in each state as part of a corporate reshuffle.
St George chief executive Greg Bartlett, says the new restructure will ensure all regions and states are directly represented on the executive team and will bring Queensland customers even closer to senior management decision making.
Queensland managing director Martin Barrett will have overall responsibility for representing Queensland customers on the executive committee and driving the business and market share.
“Queensland is a major focus for St George and there are enormous growth opportunities here. The state has proven very resilient in the challenging economic conditions,” he says.
“We’re also planning significant investment in Queensland. This includes increasing employee numbers with up to 30 new roles over the next 12 months and expanding our branch numbers and ATM networks by 10 per cent across the state.
Barrett spent seven years in Western Australia and NSW managing corporate and retail banking teams.
