NAB has appointed former Ernst Young partner David Boyle as its new CIO. He replaces David McGee, who resigned in late August.
Boyle will join the bank in February next year, reporting to Lisa Gray, group executive, enterprise services and transformation.
Since March 2012, Boyle had been a partner at Ernst Young. He also worked at the Commonwealth Bank between 2006 and 2011 as CIO, international financial services and CIO, group services.
NAB said Boyle will drive the bank’s five-year $800 million transformation plan, which includes updating its core banking platform to reduce system complexity, while centralising operations and support functions.
“David will play an integral role in furthering NAB’s transformation plan building on the strong foundations laid over the past four years. He will bring strong expertise in technology and cultural transformation, strategic insight and stakeholder management,” NAB said in a statement.
