ANZ today announced the appointment of Andrew Young as Country Head ANZ Timor-Leste.
Young replaces David Dennis who concludes his three-year term this month.
Young is a New Zealand chartered accountant with some 30 years of experience in the financial sector, and has held several senior positions over his 11-year career at ANZ New Zealand, including internal audit, financial management, project delivery and management and finance transformation roles. Prior to ANZ, Young worked for AMP Capital, Spark NZ and KPMG in Wellington and Denver, Colorado in the United States.
ANZ Regional Executive Pacific, Tessa Price, said: “Andrew has a proven record of strong finance, leadership and process skills. He is passionate about mentoring and the community and I’m pleased to have him on-board and a part of my Pacific leadership team.”
Young said he looked forward to moving to Dili this month with his family.
“Timor-Leste is a young and vibrant country with great opportunities to help the nation grow and connect to the rest of the world, particularly through trade,” Young said.
Price also thanked Dennis for his contribution to ANZ in Timor-Leste, in particular for the partnerships forged to deliver ANZ’s financial literacy program, MoneyMinded.
“ANZ’s work in the community must and will continue, and I’d like to recognise Mr Dennis for the partnerships established to deliver MoneyMinded to communities that need it the most during his time in the role,” Ms Price said.
The most recent of these partnerships announced in November last year was between ANZ, the Market Development Facility (MDF) Chamber of Commerce and Industries of Timor-Leste (CCI-TL) and Institute of Business Development Support (IADE) to deliver MoneyMinded Business Basics to small and micro-enterprises (SMEs) across Timor-Leste.
ANZ is a full-service AA-minus-rated bank with 15 years of history in Timor-Leste where ANZ is recognised for offering deep local insight and connectivity.
ANZ has the largest geographic reach of any bank in the Pacific with a presence in 12 Pacific countries, including Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, American Samoa, Guam, Kiribati, Timor-Leste, Cook Islands and a representative office in New Caledonia.
