The Commonwealth Bank has promoted an internal executive to the newly-vacant role of chief information officer following Michael Harte’s May departure, naming David Whiteing as the bank’s new head of IT.

Harte announced he would end an eight-year stint as the bank’s high-profile CIO early last month, to depart to the UK as Barclay Bank’s new chief operations and technology officer.

Harte’s departure followed the completion of the bank’s six-year $1.5 billion core banking systems overhaul.

The bank at the time signalled its preference to promote a replacement from within.

Whiteing joined Commbank as its executive general manager of architecture and planning last September from McKinsey and Company, where he worked four months as a senior adviser.

Whiteing spent the four years prior as vice president of enterprise systems for BP in the UK, and the previous 11 years at Accenture in Europe where he ran the SAP practice in the UK and Ireland.

“David is a highly experienced business and IT executive with a track record of delivering technology and process transformation in many industries, including financial services, both in Australia and overseas,” CommBank CEO Ian Narev said in a statement.

It seems odd that while 88% of businesses are undergoing some kind of digital transformation[1], only 25%[2] of them have a clear understanding of their digital transformation journey. So what's driving so many businesses to pursue digital with such recklessness? Broadly speaking, the reason is simply the unprecedented rate of change in digital solutions and services. As we ride the digital tidal wave, consumers and employees change their expectations, ...
