Sam is Head of Community Bank International at Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Limited. Bendigo's Community Bank is a shared value initiative between Bendigo and local communities with initiative, self organisation and a demonstrated demand for branch banking. Under the initiative the local communities administer a branch and share in the value of the branches banking business, which they then reinvest back into their communities enabling them to achieve outcomes that are important to them. Bendigo commenced this initiative in 1998 and is now in partnership with over 300 local communities in Australia. Importantly communities have received over A$100 million in grants since that time driving community capacity building initiatives.
Sam is exploring opportunities for Bendigo to spread its experience and expertise in Community Bank in new markets.
