Meet Your Community Bank Branch Team

Ruth Hall

After an extensive banking career spanning over 25 years, Ruth was appointed to the role of Senior Branch Manager of East Malvern Community Bank Branch (EMCB) in September last year.

Ruth has extensive banking experience in all financial services areas, including Commercial and Business Banking. She has worked for two other major banks in addition to working with Bendigo Bank for the past five years.

Ruth moved over to Bendigo Bank as she wanted to be part of a more community-minded organisation that had a full suite of banking solutions for both personal customers as well as larger business clients. She is passionate about ensuring the banking recommended to her customers fits their current requirements, as well as giving them scope for future flexibility.

Ruth loves the community involvement that EMCB is so active in. She looks forward to working hard with the EMCB Board, staff and Bendigo Bank Head Office to ensure the branch is highly successful. This in turn will allow the Board to continue to deliver ongoing support to the vast community groups that it has supported over the past 18 years. She is looking forward to getting to know the local community groups and their members as the year progresses.
She is also passionate about her responsibility for leading the branch staff team and strives to create an enjoyable environment for both them and their customers.
