In this role, he will succeed David Gonski.

The Board of ANZ today announced Paul O’Sullivan will succeed David Gonski as the Group’s Chairman at the finalisation of the full year results on October 28, 2020. The change at the top of the company follows Mr Gonski’s decision to retire from the Board after serving as Chairman for the last six and half years.

Mr Gonski was a member of the ANZ Board between February 2002 and June 2007. He returned to the Board as Chairman in 2014 and has now served with distinction as a Non-Executive Director for more than 11 years.

Mr Gonski said: “I’m delighted Paul has agreed to succeed me as Chairman. Paul is an outstanding director who has already made a strong contribution to ANZ and I’m confident he will do an excellent job leading the Board as we continue to work for the benefit of our shareholders”.

Mr O’Sullivan is currently Chairman of Western Sydney Airport Corporation, Chairman of Optus and a director of Coca Cola Amatil. He has previously held senior executive roles with Singapore Telecommunications (Singtel) and was CEO of Optus between 2004 and 2012. He is also a Director of the St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation, the National Disability Insurance Agency and St Vincent’s Health Australia.

As FinanceFeeds has reported, Mr O’Sullivan was appointed to the Board of ANZ in November 2019.
