Westpac has appointed a new General Manager, Agribusiness. Steve Hannan will take over the role from Graham Jennings, who retired from the role in March. Hannan has been acting in the post since Jennings’ retirement.

A graduate and Fellow of the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation, Hannan has previously run Westpac’s Retail and Business Banking (WRBB) division, taking care of regional, commercial and agribusiness operations in NSW and regional commercial business in Queensland.

“I’m both deeply honoured and excited to have been appointed to lead our dedicated team of agribusiness bankers who are among the very best in the country. I’m also delighted to be following in the footsteps of Graham Jennings, who served both Westpac and the industry with distinction over his many years with the bank,” said Hannan.

“We recognise the agri-industry is of critical importance, not only to regional Australia but also to the future of the country as a whole. In spite of the many challenges it has faced and continues to do so, the industry in all of its forms has shown itself to be dynamic and innovative and our job is to help it maintain its position as a sustainable force both domestically and internationally in the decades to come.”
