ING Australia has dipped into its New Zealand operations to find its new head of technology services, Rod Greenaway, closing the loop on its technology transformation team.

Greenaway will report to recently appointed CIO Greg Booker, and will focus on the investment bank's transformation program, which aims to iron out business processes and improve its web services for customers.

"Rod's appointment as head of technology services is a great reflection on capabilities inherent within ING Australia," Booker said in a statement.

Greenaway has been with ING since 2000, and for the past six months has served as acting CIO at ING New Zealand.

The joint venture operation between Dutch ING Group and ANZ Bank has been gearing up for the transformation since last October, when then CIO Greg Baster announced an AU$50 million transformation project shortly before leaving the company.

A spokesperson for the bank however said that projected costs for the overhaul may well have changed since Baster left.

ING Australia has also appointed Carolyn Tatley as head of a newly formed technology business engagement team. Tatley will also report to Booker. Tatley's team will focus on aligning technology and business requirements, such as release management and IT resource planning, as the transformation proceeds.

"These appointments largely complete the revamp of the technology leadership team and will enable us to continue to drive forward with the transformation programme at ING Australia," said Greg Booker.

Today's announcements by ING Australia follow the appointment of David Connaughton, a former IBM business process specialist, to head of strategy and project management team, reporting to chief operating officer Fred Bertram.
