Name: Andrew Sammut
Your role: Head of Victoria & Tasmania, Choice Aggregation Services
Region: Dockland, Victoria
What’s your story?
I was born in Melbourne and have always lived here. After studying Marketing at University I fell into banking by accident. Firstly, I worked with Aussie Home Loans when they launched in Victoria and then I started working for Bank of New Zealand (part of NAB) in 1997. Twenty years later I am working as the Head of Victoria and Tasmania for Choice Aggregation – and I’m still loving it.
How have you made a difference?
I like to think that I have contributed to building Choice in Victoria, but most importantly we have made this happen in the right way. We always look after our members and are focused on how we can deliver great experiences for our customers. I am a firm believer that if you deliver a great service to customers that they will not only come back, they will bring their friends and that is what drives us every day. I think we have managed to balance a number of key areas of the business including great customer satisfaction, engaged employees and growth.
What are you passionate about?
My family, especially my two girls, will always come first. In my working life, I strive for team success achieved the right way. I believe that treating people with respect, embracing our differences, supporting each other and never forgetting that your integrity is your greatest asset is the right path to long term success both in business and in life.
