Suncorp CEO resigns

Suncorp CEO Michael Cameron has resigned after four years in the top job, as the royal commission continues to rock the financial sector.

CFO Steve Johnson will act as CEO until a permanent replacement is found.

“Loan growth has materially weakened as a result of the royal commission.

“Smaller banks are lagging the major banks with regards to the sophistication of their businesses.”
