Move over mining, it’s time we focus on the booming Financial Services sector – it’s bigger than you think!

Queensland is home to many of the country’s top superannuation funds, banks, wholesale funds managers and insurance companies – with many being included in the top ten - adding thousands of jobs to the State’s economy.

With little fuss or fanfare, the financial services sector has been the quiet achiever of our economy, steadily growing for decades to become a major employer for Australians and a player on a national and international scale. 

Hear our outstanding panel.

Helen Gluer, CEO of Queensland Rail, joins the panel for the AmCham UQ Business School Luncheon on 3 June.  Helen joins Catriona Noble, Managing Director, Retail Distribution for ANZ.

Banking customers – rail customers – what do they have in common?  Lots!  How do you keep customers happy, and returning for more.  Helen and Catriona are in very different industries but they share a passion for knowing – and continuing to learn – what their customers want.

Catriona’s prior role as MD for McDonalds Australia, and then McDonald’s Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Helen’s extensive and diverse career, with more than 28 years of experience gained in the banking, financial, transport and infrastructure industries, most recently as Under Treasurer for the Queensland government, makes them both qualified and experienced to talk about customer loyalty and marketing. 


AmCham Business Luncheon

Talking Business with....Michael Cameron, Suncorp Group

When: Wednesday 15 June
Time: 11.45 - 2pm
Where: Brisbane Marriott Hotel


Michael Cameron

Michael Cameron
Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director
Suncorp Group

Michael Cameron, the new CEO and MD of Suncorp will outline his plans for Queensland’s largest company whose revenues approach 16billion dollars. With brands such as AAMI, GIO, Suncorp Bank and many others, Suncorp is a significant employer and contributor to the State’s revenues.

This is both an exciting and challenging time for Suncorp as 2015 was its worst year for natural disaster events weathering tens of thousands of claims from the Brisbane hailstorm, NSW storms, Cyclone Marcia and Sydney's Anzac Day hailstorm, which triggered the company's reinsurance cover.

Michael Cameron joined the Suncorp Group in October 2015 as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director. He has more than 30 years’ experience in financial services, property and business, including six years with The GPT Group as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director.
