WITH a wealth of experience and knowledge of finance, Paul Herbert has taken the helm at The Rock Building Society.

Mr Herbert steps into the CEO role which had been filled by Andrew Paynter who has decided to return to Tasmania.

Mr Herbert, a graduate of Queensland University of Technology, has more than 21 years experience in the financial services sector.

Recently, he has led Westpac's Asia business unit for Queensland and was RAMS Home Loans' franchise manager for Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Mr Herbert said he was very impressed by the team at The Rock.

"They understand the unique needs of local customers and are focused on providing a great customer experience," he said.

"I want to continue our growth, both locally and in other states, by providing our customers with highly competitive products and a better experience. I am looking forward to seeing our grassroots community initiatives in action such as the John Maxwell Scholarship, the CQ NRL Bid Junior Development Program and the Golden Mount Festival and the positive effect they have on the local community."

MyState Limited's general manager, sales and distribution Huw Bough said they were delighted to welcome Paul to The Rock.

"He has a great record of building and leading high- performance teams."
