ANZ has announced the appointment of former Woolworths’ executive Emma Gray as its new chief data officer.
Gray was previously the chief loyalty and data officer at the supermarket giant. Prior to her stint at Woolies, Gray was a partner at Bain & Company, having worked across Australia, the US and Europe for 15 years.
As chief data officer at ANZ, Mrs Gray will have responsibility for the major bank’s data strategy, including how data is defined, gathered, managed and protected.
ANZ’s group director of digital banking, Maile Carnegie, said Gray will play a crucial role in the bank’s digital transformation.
“How we strategically manage and use our data is fundamental to how we can deliver the best experiences for our customers and build a world-class digital bank,” she said in a statement.
“Emma will lead the creation [of] a business intelligence capability for the bank in collaboration with other teams across ANZ to identify the biggest opportunities for us to make better decisions for the bank and our customers.”
