Heritage Bank CEO Mr Peter Lock said that Mr Potter’s previous extensive banking experience would be a valuable addition to Bank’s senior management team and that his achievements and knowledge will greatly benefit them.
“Kevin’s banking career has featured management roles in areas including sales and distribution, product and pricing, risk management and credit operations,” Mr Lock explained.
Mr Potter started his new role at Heritage’s head office on Monday, 13 March, after relocating to Toowoomba with his wife, Helen. He explained that he was honoured to be joining Australia’s largest customer-owned bank and that he is looking forward to working with the Heritage team.
“It’s a fantastic time to be joining Heritage, given the recent record half-year performance and the transformation focus of the bank,” he said.
Heritage Bank hopes the addition of Mr Potter will ensure high-quality service is upheld. The bank has recently celebrated a record half-year profit after maintaining growth momentum in the first half of 2016/2017.
