ME carries out post-transformation IT restructure

Industry super fund bank ME today announced it had created new leadership roles as part of an IT restructure.

As part of the restructure, the bank created five new GM roles covering cyber security, infrastructure and operations, business solutions, strategy and architecture, and data.

ME has filled the first four roles. The bank is still seeking a general manager for data.

A statement by the bank said it was seeking someone with "proven leadership within financial services data."

"This role will be focused on designing and implementing enterprise wide governance and utilisation of data," the statement said.

Mark Gay retains the CIO role at the bank.

GM cyber security: Samantha Macleod (former APAC IT risk solutions leader at GE Capital HQ).
GM infrastructure and operations: Kate Luxmoore (former digital and transformation leader - data at GE Capital).
GM business solutions: Danny Cheong (former head of delivery at TAL Direct).
GM strategy and architecture: Shane Kuret (Kuret has been at ME for eight years, most recently as transformation program manager).

Last month the bank revealed it had completed its half-decade, $90 million technology transformation.

The transformation program involved moving 320,000 customers on to seven new software systems.

The bank today described its IT restructure as ME moving into "a post-'technology transformation' phase of operations".
