The Mutual Bank’s Board Chair Steve Meyn has paid tribute to long-standing Director Melinda Smith who has retired from the role after 10 years.

Ms Smith attended her last Board Meeting in February.

“Our thanks to Melinda who brought a fresh perspective to the Board with her passion for the community, communications and corporate affairs,” he said.

“Melinda truly personifies The Mutual Bank values of Integrity, Respect and Care and we are indebted to her for sharing her experience with us all over so many years.”

Ms Smith thanked The Mutual Bank for the opportunity to support customer-owned banking values.

“I have valued being part of the organisation’s strong growth and development during the last decade, with a focus firmly set on helping members and their communities thrive,” she said.

Mr Meyn said he was thrilled to welcome Andre Pinkowski to the Board to fill the vacant position created by Ms Smith’s retirement.

An experienced Founder, CEO and digitally native Company Director, Mr Pinkowski’s career has spanned enterprise software-as-a-service, IT consultancy, web, mobile, and digital entertainment.

“Andre brings a dynamic new energy to the Board as an inspiring entrepreneurial leader and strategist, having founded, scaled, and sold several high growth companies,” Mr Meyn said.

He is also a Committee Member of the HMRI Foundation, Non-Executive Director at Hunter Angels and a member of the AICD Northern NSW Regional Advisory Group.

Mr Pinkowski joins current Directors Steve Meyn, Deb Mirisch, Sharon Howes, Scott King and Steve Martinelli.
