news The Commonwealth Bank of Australia has promoted an internal executive who joined the bank in September after a lengthy career at petroleum giant VP and IT services group Accenture to replace its outgoing chief information officer Michael Harte, who announced in early May that he would leave the bank.
CommBank chief executive Ian Narev made the announcement in a statement to the Australian Stock Exchange today, naming David Whiteing (see his LinkedIn profile here) as the new group executive of Enterprise Services and chief information officer at the bank.
Whiteing joined the bank as executive general manager of Architecture and Planning in September 2013. He was previously a senior advisor to consulting firm McKinsey in Sydney. Prior to that he held a role as vice president of Enterprise Systems at BP for four and a half years until January 2013. And previously to that role he was a senior executive and partner at Accenture, leading the group’s SAP practice in the UK and Ireland.
The executive’s LinkedIn profile states that he holds a Bachelor of Business Science (Finance and Economics) from the University of Cape Town. He has a working knowledge of both Italian and Afrikaans and lists his interests as cycling, golf, tennis, wine, travel, technology and skiing.
In his statement, Narev said the appointment of Whiteing continues the bank’s track record of promoting internal candidates to executive roles. “David is a highly experienced business and IT executive with a track record of delivering technology and process transformation in many industries, including financial services, both in Australia and overseas,” Narev said.
