National Australia Bank’s interim CEO Phil Chronican will succeed Ken Henry as chairman. There had been speculation that Chronican could be a contender to replace Andrew Thorburn as CEO, but Chronican says he did not want to commit to the arduous role of CEO on a permanent basis. Chronican adds that he does not expect the process of recruiting Thorburn’s successor to take very long. Henry and Thorburn both resigned following the release of the Hayne royal commission’s final report, which heavily criticised both men.
