Bendigo Community Bank Welcomes New Branch Manager

Bendigo Community Bank Cannonvale-Proserpine is excited to announce the appointment of Amanda Anderson as its new Branch Manager.  

“We are delighted to have Cannonvale local and active community member Amanda Anderson join the Branch team. She is a welcome inclusion for our Branch team, customers, and shareholders. We look forward to her contribution in 2024 and beyond” said Community Bank Cannonvale-Proserpine Chairman Mark Henry.

Amanda brings to the role over ten years branch management and banking specialist experience, and time spent in business development, property management, and small business ownership.

“I am really excited to be in a leadership role and lead a customer focused team,” said Amanda. “The opportunity to service the local community and help our customers with their home loan journey or assist them in building their investment portfolio is exciting.”

The Community Bank Cannonvale-Proserpine opened in June 2012 with the support of local shareholders who saw the value of the Community Bank model and raised $800,000 locally to establish a branch in the Whitsundays.

At Bendigo Bank, our customers and the community always win. Our success is based on our profit-with-a-purpose model which sees around 50 per cent of the profits generated by our independently owned and operated Cannonvale-Proserpine branch invested back into the community.

Over the past seven years Bendigo Community Bank Cannonvale-Proserpine have invested just over $178,600 into local schools, social programs, sporting groups, arts and culture events, conservation initiatives, and community prizes.

“I chose to join the Community Bank as I would be proud to be part of an organisation that is so involved and invested in the local community with volunteering and sponsorship” she said.  

“Our ability to invest in the local community is due to our branch team for delivering consistently high-quality customer service, our shareholders for backing the Whitsundays community, and all the passionate local directors past and present for their hard work and dedication”, said Mark.
