Introducing Anastasia Cammaroto, Chief Information Officer, Personal Bank and Digital at NAB. Ana leads teams that create digital solutions for NAB customers and bankers; driving innovations that make NAB services simpler, smarter and safer.

Ana attended WiBF’s 2022 Award Celebrations at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on September 2nd, and said that winning the award was a wonderful honour. “The award was such a wonderful recognition of my career in financial services technology, and my work to encourage a STEM-confident society and a more diverse workplace. The positive response from many of my current and past colleagues made it even more special,” Ana said. “The event itself was warm and fun, and gave everyone involved an opportunity to look past our inherent competition as businesses and celebrate those that raise the bar for all.”

Ana shares her advice for women who wish to grow a career in the technology space. “I would encourage everyone, regardless of formal qualifications, to consider technology as a space where their diverse backgrounds can have long-standing impact. This is a space where you can change customer experiences, business processes and society more broadly – and it’s never the same for too long! Passion and energy for what you do are also key. If you are not (mostly!) happy to start work on a Monday morning, change what you do or where you are doing it.”

Ana said the greatest lesson she had learned in her career was that there is never a perfect time to challenge yourself; instead, you just need to jump in when opportunities arise. “I undertook a challenging leadership development program a few years into my career as a mother of three young children. It was a life-changer not only for me personally and the skills it gave me – but also for the spotlight that it then put on me which in turn opened up new opportunities.”

Beyond Ana’s impressive career, she has an eclectic music style – embracing everything from pop to heavy metal – and has seen over 150 live performances. She can also read ancient Greek after spending some time studying the language whilst living in Athens as a child. You can watch Anastasia Cammaroto’s acceptance speech – here
