A Suncorp executive will leave the Brisbane-based bancassurance giant this March.

Harland’s resignation will take effect on March 27, with Darren Abbruzzese, Suncorp’s executive general manager for digital, labs, and insurance technology, to act as CIO while the group searches for a permanent replacement, CIO and Financial Standard reported.

The outgoing CIO joined Suncorp in 2016 to lead Suncorp’s technology function, including digital enablement, cloud and infrastructure, security services, data, and innovation labs.

Prior to Suncorp, she was executive general manager for technology and operations at Medibank, had worked at ANZ Bank, and had held CIO roles at the National Health Service in the UK and QWEST Communications in Denver, US, the reports said.
