Summerland Welcomes New Director

Summerland Credit Union is proud to welcome Rob Hale as new Director to the Board.

We are honoured to welcome Rob Hale, who has a wealth of experience across financial services within the customer-owned banking sector, to the Summerland Board. Rob is an expert in banking technology and strategy, with extensive experience in Australia and overseas.

Rob is a current government and industry advisory board and committee member, fintech leader and C-Suite technology executive. He has extensive financial services experience in technology, consumer policy and data and analytics with over a decade of practical experience in executive technology roles, within the customer-owned banking sector.

As Head of Banking in Australia for TrueLayer, Rob is a leading advocate, innovator and collaborator in the open finance movement in Australia. He previously championed the Consumer Data Right (CDR) at Regional Australia Bank, helping make it the first Australian bank to be both a Data Holder and unrestricted Accredited Data Recipient.

CEO, John Williams, commented that he was thrilled to have Rob join the Board. “Rob will bring considerable value and key insights to the Board that will not only strengthen governance, risk and strategy but will help guide our digital transformation journey which has only heightened since the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent flood events in the region”.

Our digital transformation journey includes upgrading our core technology systems which will enable us to continue to provide excellent customer service that is aligned with Summerland’s growth strategy. As a customer owned organisation, this is imperative to our continued success”.

Rob will be inducted to the Summerland Board this week.
