Bankwest has appointed a new chief information officer from within its own ranks.
Bank spokesperson Adrian Bradley confirmed the appointment of Andy Weir to ZDNet.com.au today, saying that he started at the post in January.
Weir had been the head of change management at the bank, according to Bradley. Based on Weir's LinkedIn profile, he started at the bank in March 2006.
Former CIO Tony Clasquin resigned at the end of last year.
The appointment comes at a period of rapid development within Bankwest parent Commonwealth Bank, which is involved in a massive four-year, $730 million effort to overhaul its core banking platform with the aid of Accenture and SAP.
The integration of Bankwest's accounts into that platform is not slated to happen until after financial year 2012, but before that time there will be various systems alignment activities taking place at the subsidiary.
