Bendigo & Adelaide Bank veteran Marnie Baker will replace outgoing CEO Mike Hirst on 2 July. Baker is currently the chief customer officer, and she has held a number of roles at the regional bank since joining it in 1989. She says Bendigo’s focus on trust and fairness is a key strength given the negative sentiment toward the banking sector in general at present. Meanwhile, Hirst has criticised regulators over the lack of a level playing field for smaller banks, arguing that it has hindered Bendigo’s growth.
