A new branch manager has been appointed at the Bendigo Bank Augusta & Districts Community Branch.
Amy Beaton, currently residing in Cowaramup with her partner and with 8 years experience in retail banking, said she was excited to be leading the community branch in a number of ways.
"The Augusta & Districts Community Bank has done so much for our community already and I endeavour to increase our community involvement and impact in the future through volunteering, sponsorship and support," Ms Beaton said.
"I look forward to being involved in the community on a deeper level to ensure our community grows in the right direction. I am excited to be a part of a banking initiative that directly benefits our community."
Ms Beaton said the bank had supported a range of local efforts this year.
"Highlights include our major sponsorship of 2 Oceans FM, as well as helping the Margaret River Hockey Club with their goal to build their own training ground closer to home.
