Jason Murray appointed ANZ Country Head, Cook Islands

ANZ today announced the appointment of Jason Murray as Country Head, Cook Islands, subject to regulatory approvals. Reporting to Bernie Poort, ANZ Regional Country Manager for Samoa, Cook Islands and Tonga, Mr Murray will have responsibility for the bank’s retail and commercial banking business in the Cook Islands.

“The Pacific is a key part of ANZ’s international network and the Cook Islands is one of our core Pacific markets. I look forward to working with Jason to build an even stronger business here,” Mr Poort said.

“In Jason’s most recent role as Head of Commercial Banking in Kiribati, he has made a significant contribution, helping to steer the business through COVID19. He has demonstrated empathetic leadership, genuine care for people and commitment to customers.

“Jason is an experienced banker who has also spent time running his own finance business.

“I’m particularly pleased that we were able to make this appointment internally, reflecting the breadth and depth of leadership potential we have across the Pacific,” Mr Poort said.

Mr Murray is expected to relocate to the Cook Islands in September.
