Marnie Baker, Managing Director, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank

Bendigo Bank has not been immune to the challenges of 2020. For our business though, our strong values have guided how we are leading through this period and, importantly, supporting our customers and communities in their time of need. To be meaningful, values must be matched by behaviour. The way our organisation and people responded to the Black Summer bushfires demonstrates our dedication to going above and beyond for our customers and communities. The significant impact our appeal has had in bushfire-affected communities is directly attributable to the energy, responsiveness and dedication of our people. I wholly endorse this application.
