HAMILTON’S Bank of Melbourne staff have been summoned to the boss’s office, but they are not in trouble and the boss has come to them.
Bank of Melbourne chief executive, Scott Tanner, has visited Hamilton as part of his two-year program to hear first-hand about the issues affecting the bank’s branches.
Mr Tanner told The Hamilton Spectator that he was in Hamilton to hear about what was going right and wrong as well as “sample some of the local food and wine.”
“We have a program which involves a kind of ‘town hall’ meeting which will cover retail banking as well as business banking,” he said.
“We’ll talk about the business and how to better serve customers.”
Mr Tanner denied his program was a response to the Reserve Bank of Australia continually lowering home loan interest rates, but did say the bank sector was facing challenges.
