Warrane Formal Dinner with Joseph Rizk

Joseph held senior executive positions at National Australia Bank before he decided to join Arab Bank Australia in 2005. Arab Bank Australia’s parent company, Arab Bank Plc, was the first private sector financial institution in the Arab world. Headquartered in Jordan, with more than 500 branches spanning across five continents, it provides several personal and business banking services for its customers – from home loans and deposits to lending and foreign exchange. In Australia, it is open to all members of the community, with about 80% of its depositors coming from a non-Arabic background. He has over 44 years of corporate, commercial and international banking and finance experience. In 2014 Joe became President of the Westmead Medical Research Foundation and in 2015 he was nominated the Chairman of the Italian Opera Foundation Association. On Queen’s Birthday 2015, Joseph was awarded the ‘Order of Australia’ in recognition of his extraordinary contribution to the banking sector and the community.
