Introducing Andrew de Graaff - Chief Executive Officer

Attention: open in a new window. Print

We are excited to introduce Andrew de Graaff who will be taking on the important role of our new Chief Executive Officer.

With over 25 years experience in retail banking in Australia and Singapore, Andrew joins us most recently from Hume Bank in Albury where he was Chief Customer Officer, overseeing customer experience, the branch and lending network, brand, marketing, sales, product and pricing. Our team speaks to Andrew to find out a little more about him and how he intends to steer us into the future.  

You are new to Orange, what do you think so far?

Orange has always been a special place for our family. My mother grew up here while my grandfather was a local GP and over the years we continued to return to visit family and friends in the area and have loved it. Orange is beautiful and as the father of three girls, I am thrilled at the opportunities Orange has to offer them. I look forward for us to be a part of the local community!

What changes can Members expect to see at Orange Credit Union?

Firstly, a huge thank you to Paul McNamara for his incredible passion, commitment and dedication to Orange Credit Union over the last 30 years. In the short time I have been here, it is clear to see how highly regarded Paul is amongst our staff, members and the broader Orange community.

Orange Credit Union is in a strong position, providing a solid foundation for our future. With new digital products and technologies being introduced, managing personal finances is becoming easier and faster. While maintaining our growth momentum, we will continue to focus on our members, helping them navigate these innovations. I am very excited that I am joining such a passionate team and cant wait to work closely with our staff, members and community at large.

What else can you tell us about yourself?

As our daughters have become older and more independent, I have decided to try a new hobby here in Orange – woodworking. My father is an engineer and his job took him all over the world. I grew up in Brazil, America and Hong Kong. I watched him tinker in his workshops over the years and some of that desire to make things rubbed off on me. I am looking forward to building my first piece and seeing if I’ve inherited my father’s skills!
