New CBA team deployed to support veterans



Commonwealth Bank now has a new team of specialised bankers to assist past and present members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF), and their families who are seeking to start or grow their own business.

CBA’s specialised business bankers will provide tailored support to help the veteran community transition from service to entrepreneurship. This includes discounts and offers on business support materials and technology to help veterans manage their business operations.

Clare Morgan, CBA EGM of small business banking, said the team of specialised bankers, called Veterans Business Bankers, includes employees who are part of the veteran community, including Reservists in the ADF as well as family of service members, Asia-Pacific Defence Report reported.

“Some of our team have walked the same path and understand how best to help veterans pursue their next endeavours in life,” Morgan told APDR. “Veteran entrepreneurs will be able to access practical advice about how to create a successful and sustainable business as well as support to build connections with others in the veteran business community.”
