We want you to get to know our staff – the friendly people behind our motto of #BetterBanking. So, we are introducing the next staff member in our ‘Faces Behind Better Banking’ series….
Next up we have Christian Greco, the Member Service and Relationship Officer helping our Members down on the beautiful Limestone Coast. He is the first to admit that he loves to have a good chat with our Members, he’s also pretty good at having a laugh at himself and, it must be mentioned, he is also a City of Mount Gambier Councillor. Impressive!
