Satinder Singh

Executive Director Payments & Cash Management

After starting as a graduate in IT, Satinder has enjoyed a diverse career with CommBank, moving into product management after a few years.

“Through gradual exposure to larger and more complex assignments, I gained more and more responsibility, product knowledge and expertise, especially in managing people, projects and commercial business units. All this supported experience meant I was able to apply my capabilities to different product groups that I initially had no background in.”

During his time at CommBank, Satinder was involved with a business expansion project into India, where he travelled as part of a small group of executives to meet with potential local partners and contractors.

“By chance, I was the only non-Anglo Australian and we were meeting with locals from the Punjab province – which is where my own cultural background is. I could feel there was an instant rapport simply because of this shared cultural background.  As a result, we were able to much more quickly move beyond the typically tentative exchange of views and priorities to discuss the critical tangible elements of the potential arrangement”, he says. “It certainly demonstrated the value in our broad diversity.”

Although that was an individual moment to shine, Satinder also believes in the importance of teamwork.

“Personal networks are really important at CommBank. You meet and work with so many different people with so many different experiences, talents and expertise – they’ve helped me, no matter what I’ve needed to do or deliver.”
