Westpac appoints Katryna Murtagh as General Manager, Non-Financial Risk and Chief Compliance Officer
We are delighted to have partnered with Westpac on the appointment of Katryna as General Manager, Non-Financial Risk and Chief Compliance Officer
Reporting directly to the Group Chief Risk Officer, Ryan Zanin, Katryna will lead the 2nd Line Non-Financial Risk function to support Westpac Group in managing operational risk and compliance. This newly created role was a result of a reorganisation to simplify the Group’s risk division. This position will continue to maintain existing commitments to minimise the group’s exposure to risk.
