BOQ Group appoints two new executives to management team

BOQ Group today announced the appointment of two executives to the management team reporting to CEO Patrick Allaway. 

Alexandra Taylor joins as Chief People Officer and will start on 11 March 2024. Most recently Alex was Chief People Officer to NAB’s two largest business units.

Rachel Stock joins as Chief Risk Officer Designate ahead of the previously announced planned retirement of current Chief Risk Officer David Watts later this year. Rachel joins on 1 February 2024. David and Rachel will work on a seamless transition over the coming months. Rachel was most recently responsible for Macquarie Group’s operational risk and governance. 

Mr Allaway said: “Alex and Rachel are both highly qualified industry professionals with strong leadership capability and deep subject matter expertise in their respective fields. 

“With these two exceptional appointments, I am confident that we have the right team in place to lead our strategic initiatives to be a stronger, simpler digitally enabled bank. 

“Since taking the CEO role, I have consciously taken action to reduce the size of the executive team to better reflect the needs of a smaller bank.

“I am excited about the leadership and capability that Alex and Rachel will bring to BOQ Group to support our transformation.”
