Tania Foster appointed as new Elders Chief Financial Officer
Tania Foster is making a career switch from banking to become the Chief Financial Officer of Elders but, with a farming background, it’s one she says seems quite natural.
“I’ll be adding rainfall charts, cattle, lamb and grain prices to my focus on financial markets, currency charts and interest rates,” Ms Foster said.
“In many ways, it feels like a homecoming.
“I grew up on a sheep and cattle property at Casterton in Western Victoria and am still very much involved in my own farm.”
Tania joined Elders after 11 years at NAB, where she has most recently held the role of CFO for Business and Private Banking
Before joining NAB, Tania held roles with other blue-chip Australian companies, including ANZ, Pacific Dunlop and BHP.
Elders CEO, Mark Allison said Ms Foster’s experience of running regional banking territories at ANZ offered an insight into the needs of Elders’ customers and Australian farmers more generally.
“We are very pleased to welcome Tania to Elders,” Mr Allison said.
“Her deep experience in finance, the financial services sector and her understanding of farming is highly complementary to Elders as we focus on delivering our third Eight Point Plan and continual improvement of all aspects of Elders’ business.”
