Your role: Head of Portfolio Management Insights

What’s your story?
Having written my economics thesis on the banking industry, it seems natural that my career would eventually take me into financial services, and fortunately for me - to NAB. I am motivated by solving problems and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment. NAB has given me all of this, including a myriad of opportunities in the area of transformational change.
How have you made a difference?
My role is dedicated to ensuring the effective delivery of a number of strategic projects to help make life easier for our customers. Through these projects, we make changes that keep our customers and their data safe. When we choose to invest in a project, it’s important that we prioritise the right programs and that we do so efficiently and deliver in line with customer expectations. I have worked hard to enhance our internal processes, and to improve engagement in these projects across the bank. I am passionate about never settling for second best. This keeps me motivated daily
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about developing people and helping them fulfill their potential, whatever that might be. Outside of work, one of the ways I do this is by volunteering as a basketball coach (which means on my weekends I am also surrounded by highly motivated people!). I also love travel, especially discovering the lands of my heritage, and being active in the great outdoors, especially running and ocean swimming.
