With more than 20 years’ experience in the mutual banking industry, Andrew Hadley stepped into the role of CEO at P&N Bank in January this year. Chosen for his strategic vision, leadership and skills in change management and business development, Andrew has been charged to lead, energise and unlock further potential within the P&N Bank business.

“"Prior to joining P&N I worked for CUA, the largest mutual in Australia, ultimately heading up their retail operations and leading a team of more than 500 staff.”"

Following that, Andrew shifted across into an operations role, heading up lending, payments and subsidiary companies. His final role was Group General Manager Strategy and Marketing, which was very much focused on positioning the business as a challenger to the major banks.

During this time, Andrew also sat on the board of Abacus, now known as the Customer Owned Banking Association (COBA). After leaving CUA at the end of 2012, he spent a few months consulting before joining CGU, a subsidiary of IAG, as their national business manager.

The P&N Board’'s decision to bring in someone with Andrew’'s strong mutual background clearly supports its mandate that the bank has no intention of demutualising any time soon. Andrew was drawn to P&N because of its position as Western Australia’'s largest locally owned and managed bank. "“It was an opportunity too good to pass up. I'’ve returned to an industry that I know particularly well and am very much looking forward to influencing the future of such a strong and well-known Western Australian brand.”"
