The Commonwealth Bank has appointed David Whiteing as the new group executive, enterprise services and chief information officer.
Whiteing replaces former CIO, Michael Harte, who is taking up a role as chief operations and technology officer at Barclays Bank in London.
Commonwealth Bank chief executive, Ian Narev, said the appointment of Whiteing continued the group's track record of promoting internal candidates to executive roles.
"David is a highly experienced business and IT executive with a track record of delivering technology and process transformation in many industries, including financial services, both in the Australia and overseas," he said.
Narev said that technology and productivity were long-term strategic priorities of the group.
"David and his technology and operations teams will build on the group's extensive investment in technology to ensure ongoing innovation for our customers, and continuing productivity, reliability and security."
Whiteing joined the bank in September 2013 to lead the newly formed architecture and planning team in enterprise services.
Prior to joining the group, he was vice-president of enterprise systems at BP in the UK.
He is also a former Accenture partner with extensive SAP experience, according to a company statement.
Whiteing will start his new role on July 14.
