‘Ashamed’, ‘disappointed’ — but going nowhere: NAB chief Andrew Thorburn talks to Neil Mitchell
The NAB boss has cancelled his long-service leave to deal with the fallout from the Banking Royal Commission.
Chief executive Andrew Thorburn, who copped the wrath of yesterday’s report, today told Neil Mitchell he was “disappointed to read the Commissioner’s view on me and us (the NAB)” after they were singled out in Kenneth Hayne’s report.
But, despite suggestions he might quit, Mr Thorburn has vowed to carry on and make good.
“I’m more determined than ever to do the right thing,” he told Neil Mitchell.
“There are some things that have happened that I’m ashamed of.. that I’m disappointed about… It is important we own the mistakes… and we fix them.. but we need perspective too.” Andrew Thorburn fronts @3AWNeilMitchell to answer to Royal Commission.
