General Manager - St.George Retail Banking
St.George Bank has been responsibly helping Australian families into their homes, save and protect what’s important to them for more than 80 years.
Today, General Manager Ross Miller leads a team of 1,700 people who deliver friendly, down to earth service to nearly two million customers across a network of over 170 branches and a local customer contact centre.
Together with his executive team, Ross oversees a special banking culture that’s true to the bank’s heritage as a building society with roots in Southern Sydney and strong links to the community. St.George stands for family, community, inclusion and diversity and the bank is proud to celebrate Australia’s most loved family moments and support organisations and institutions that are important to Australian families – from the bank’s partnership of over 40 years with the St George Illawarra Dragons and newer ones with the GWS Giants and St.George Queensland Reds, to the iconic St.George OpenAir Cinema and the St.George Foundation which has been helping little dragons in communities across Australia for more than 25 years.
With more than 20 years’ experience in banking and financial services, Ross was appointed General Manager in 2015. He previously held executive roles in HR at Westpac, where he was responsible for a workforce of 25,000 people across the bank’s Australian and New Zealand operations. His background includes finance, retail, distribution and operations in Australia and overseas. Ross is passionate about wellbeing and creating cultures where people can bring their full selves to work and actively supports mental health and inclusion and diversity initiatives. He is particularly involved in helping those suffering the effects of Dementia, and one of his proudest moments came in 2017 when St.George Bank was recognised by Dementia Australia as Australia’s first Dementia Friendly Bank.
Ross is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, an Australian Human Resources Institute fellow, among the Boss-Deloitte LGBTI Top 50 leaders and was named recipient of the Dave Ulrich HR Leader Award in 2012.
