New ANZ CEO misses his Aston Martins

Aston MartinNew ANZ CEO, Michael Smith, yesterday showed he may have some distance to cover in terms of relating to his fellow workers at ANZ Bank, when he revealed to the Sydney Morning Herald that he owns about 10 hand built Aston Martins back in Hong Kong.

Meanwhile he also outlined his philosophy on performance pay to the Australian newspaper:

“‘I actually like to keep it simple,’ he said.

‘I like people to be very aware of what they’ve got to achieve and I expect them to achieve it.

‘If they do … they’ll get rewarded, if they don’t I’ll find people who can.'”

And told the Sydney Morning Herald to expect more outsourcing of bank processing jobs off shore:

“The thrust of the technological moves would allow customers to do all their own banking at the touch of button, in a move that indicates ANZ will aim to cut costs even further in back-office work.

This could lead to more banking jobs being outsourced to countries like India, where ANZ already has a large IT centre.

‘There are great savings [to be made] in processing,’ Mr Smith said.”

    I would rather know more about his philanthropic activities than his Aston Martins.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else
    encountering issues with your site. It seems like some of the
    written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Cheers

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people
    from that service? Thanks a lot!

    Washing of CurtainsIn most instances, oil pulling you will have to decide is do you want them to serve?
    As most people oil pulling tend to think that
    you’ve got some fact-checking to do. How about a shower curtain is a cafe curtain, you can clean your blinds without taking them off the window.

    After we complete our top earning years – whatever we earn or collect could very well
    be taxed at oil pulling a much higher rate.
