Guest Speaker
Marnie Baker
Chief Executive Officer, Bendigo & Adelaide Bank

Marnie Baker’s 32 year career in banking can easily be described in one word; illustrious.

Before becoming Chief Executive Officer of the Bank in 2018, Marnie had responsibility for an extensive number of business areas including her Executive role of Chief Customer Officer, where she was at the helm of the customer strategy that has shaped the Bank’s noted growth and transformation in recent times.   

Recognised for her unique and authentic leadership style, Marnie is an advocate for building strong communities of all kinds. As one of only 10 female Chief Executive Officers in the ASX200, Marnie has long been a leading proponent of the Bank’s philosophy of feeding into prosperity, not off it. 

It’s this philosophy that is central to every facet of Marnie’s work on and off the balance sheet. It fosters the right environment for the Bank to be truly customer centric, colours her desire to empower employees and nurture development, drives economic and social progress for women and diversity, and champions the diverse needs of Regional Australia, the place that first influenced Marnie’s passion for giving back. 

Let’s come together and celebrate our industry, learn from winning work, and make new connections.
