Geelong Bank's Board has appointed a new Chair – Tim Boyd, replacing Dominic Raimondo who has stepped down as Chair after 6 years.

Mr Boyd has been a standing Director of the Bank (formally FCCS Credit Union) for over 5 years and brings great deal of local business knowledge as well as a wealth understanding of the mutual banking sector. A Geelong local, Tim is currently the Executive General Manager at genU and has previously held positions with GMHBA and Ford Motor Company.

“It is an exciting time for Geelong Bank, and a great honour to be selected as the new Chair of this growing organisation” Mr Boyd said.

“We have had 6 years under the guidance of Dominic, who has been a driving force for our growth including our recent successful transition to the Geelong Bank brand. We are grateful for his insights and leadership during his time as Chair, and on behalf of our Members, our Staff and Management, I would like to thank him for his contribution to our organisation and the Mutual Banking industry.”

The outgoing Chair, who will remain on the Board, said he believed Mr Boyd’s experience and dedication would benefit Geelong Bank and our Members.

“We are delighted to have a Chair with such a depth of local experience in the Mutual industry that carries a passion for serving the people of Geelong. I am honoured to have been part of such a progressive organisation, started by Ford employees and evolving into a Bank that the community can be proud of.” Dominic concluded.

Geelong Bank has been a proud part of the Geelong community since 1974 and prides itself for being independently owned by our member customers.
