National Australia Bank has appointed Khan Horne to lead its Regional and Agribusiness group, taking over the role from Julie Rynski, who has been appointed as NAB Executive for Business Metro.
Mr Horne starts in the role of NAB Executive Regional and Agribusiness today, leading a team of 650 regional and agribusiness bankers in more than 120 locations around Australia.
Originally from the Northern Rivers region of NSW, Mr Horne has been with NAB for more than 30 years. His previous roles include Agribusiness General Manager and Northern NSW State Business Banking Executive.
Mr Horne said he was looking forward to working with NAB’s regional and agribusiness customer base, which is one of the largest and most diverse in Australia.
“As Australia’s biggest business lender, we’re acutely aware of the opportunities, changes and challenges our customers across regional and rural Australia are facing as 2023 begins,” Mr Horne said.
“The boom in migration of many city dwellers to regional and rural areas over the past three years is now driving the way many businesses are looking to the future and we’re here to support our customers as they navigate their path forward.”
