Two new Directors for Data Action Board

Data Action (DA) Chair, Jane Jeffreys, is pleased to announce the appointment of two new directors to the DA Board.

Joh Barker and Greg Camm joined the DA Board in June 2021.

Ms Barker has significant board experience, with a background in business technology change, having been a director at CenITex during its complex migration to cloud delivery.

Her previous senior leadership roles with major technology-based businesses focused on strategy, operations, and governance.

Her 40-year career also includes eight years working with ANZ, where she was a senior executive in payment technologies and regulation, creating a central hub for global operations and later moving to strategic digital transformation.

Mr Camm has extensive board and chair experience, including his current role with AMIST Super. He is also a trustee of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. His senior leadership roles in financial services focused on mortgage finance and retail banking.

His 40-year career also includes CEO roles with Superpartners, AMP Financial Services (New Zealand) and ANZ (New Zealand).

Ms Jeffreys said DA will benefit greatly from the experience of Ms Barker and Mr Camm.

“This will support DA’s strategy for growth and further innovation, delivering even better banking experiences for our clients and their customers,” Ms Jeffreys said.
