Marnie Baker, Managing Director, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank

Our people care deeply about the communities they live and work in. Volunteering and giving back to their local community are a way of life for many of our people, and we recognise the importance this has in strengthening a community's social fabric. Scott's contribution and the support of his colleagues at the Braidwood Community Bank undoubtedly saved lives and continues to assist in the recovery of severely fire-affected communities. Scott's integrity and character are a credit to him and show what's possible when people come together. I whole heartedly endorse this nomination.
