Peter King, CEO Westpac Group

"It has been a great privilege to see the commitment of our bankers working in disaster zones this year, particularly bankers such as Kaytee Collins. Kaytee is one of those exceptional team members who demonstrates that we are not just a bank who can provide financial support but a company with a deep connection and care for the community.

While Kaytee was coming to terms with the bushfires on Kangaroo Island and facing the longer term rebuild and recovery, she continued to do everything within her power to support affected customers and the community at large.

In what has been a challenging year Kaytee continues to provide extraordinary care for our customers, communities, and her immediate team."
