A bank spokesman said that as customers continue to move to digital channels, Westpac is increasing the focus on its technology offering as it wants to be the leading bank in providing digital solutions for its customers.

“This is a key priority and the reason why a new executive level role of chief information officer has been created,” he said.

“An executive search is now under way for the permanent CIO role.”
