Ross McEwan: 40 years in the industry



In one of his last appearances as NAB CEO, Ross McEwan shares his reflections on his career spanning 40 years across the globe.

In the interview, Ross shares his thoughts on the biggest changes he has seen in banking over this time, and the challenges and opportunities ahead.

He also expresses his ongoing optimism for the Australian and New Zealand economies. He concludes with his plans for retirement from executive life and a thank you to all his colleagues.

“If you look after your customers, over time they constantly see you doing good things with and for them, and helping them prosper,” Mr McEwan said.


“They’ll tell other people about it and you’ll find your bank grows because your customers are growing.”

“That’s something that at NAB we’re starting to get very good at. We’re doing good things with customers.”
