Bank puts another woman in top job


NUNI Kulu is the new general manager digital for Bank South Pacific, effective Jan 1.
Chief executive Robin Fleming said Nuni’s appointment made her the second female to be appointed to the executive of BSP after Hari Rabura, the general manager of human resources.
Nuni said this was a very proud moment for her and her family who had supported her throughout her career with BSP.
She joined the former PNG Banking Corporation (PNGBC) as a graduate and worked in treasury and retail banking.
“Nuni’s appointment as general manager digital also reflects BSP’s ongoing commitment to enhance and increase our digital services,” Fleming said.
“BSP has been the market leader in electronic and digital banking for many years.
“It is now being the first bank to launch electronic cards, commit to an unprecedented rollout of ATMs and Eftpos terminals to support electronic transactions, develop tablet-based customer acquisition, making mobile phone banking available with its USSD phone banking and its smartphone app, and of course internet banking.
“Nuni will have responsibility for rolling out an even more aggressive digital product strategy.”
Fleming said that he and the board had every confidence in Nuni’s capability to effectively execute and manage this strategy.
“Nuni hails from Manus and holds a Bachelor of Commerce attained at the Australian National University, with many years of experience with PNGBC and BSP.
“She is a fine example of Papua New Guineans excelling in their respective fields.”
Both Kulu and Rabura were members of BSP’s leadership development programme and have benefited from leadership and management training at Melbourne Business
School and Insead College in France.
Bank South Pacific has 42 participants in its leadership programme with members coming from Papua New Guinea, Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu.
The programme has already been a success with a number of the participants having received promotions within BSP.
It also grooms developing and emerging leaders as well as more senior leaders such as Kulu and Rabura.
