Mrs Gray joined ANZ in February 2017 as the inaugural Chief Data Officer before being promoted to the Group Executive Committee in May 2020 as Group Executive Data and Automation.
During more than five years at ANZ, Mrs Gray played an important role in the establishment of data management expertise during a crucial period with the introduction and expansion of Comprehensive Credit Reporting, Open Banking and other changes across the industry. She has also led our work in automation and more recently in Operations transformation.
ANZ Chief Executive Officer Shayne Elliott said: “Emma is an outstanding leader and while we are disappointed to lose someone of her calibre, we respect her decision and wish her well. Emma can be proud of the contribution she has made preparing the bank for the future and building a team of highly credentialed data experts. I know Emma will spend the next few months prioritising spending time with family overseas and contemplating her next chapter.”
Mrs Gray said: “I’ve really enjoyed my time at ANZ and I’m extremely proud of the amazing team I have built, setting ANZ up for ongoing transformation”.
Mrs Gray’s core data responsibilities, including Data Governance and Data Delivery, will be led by Michelle Pinheiro, in her new role as Chief Risk Officer Data & Technology, reporting to Group Chief Risk Officer Kevin Corbally.
Mrs Gray will finish with ANZ in August 2022.
