SUNCORP Bank's Craig Armstrong has already met some of Gladstone's customers, and looks forward to meeting a few more on his next trip.

Mr Armstrong has been appointed as the regional manager for personal customers for central and south-west Queensland.

"I have been visiting Gladstone for more than 15 years through my previous roles so I have a strong understanding of the change that has occurred and continues to happen within the area," he said.

"I will spend my time between each of the areas within the central and south-west region and will visit Gladstone every couple of months."

Based in Toowoomba, Mr Armstrong will look after 21 branches and six agencies for Suncorp Bank, with a team committed to regional and rural communities.

"I'm thrilled to be leading the Suncorp Bank teams in central and south-west Queensland," he said.

"Our team has the experience and local knowledge we know our Gladstone customers value, and similarly has the skills and resources to make decisions locally meaning faster turnaround times for our customers."

Mr Armstrong said he wanted to help deliver more than just financial solutions to his customers.

"I am looking forward to providing social support to the local communities through Suncorp Bank's regional road shows and financial seminars, as well as our sponsorship of various regional events including Queensland Touring Film Festival, Beef Week and Queensland Bulls Masters."

Mr Armstrong has more than 20 years' banking and finance experience, occupying previous leadership positions with Westpac and the Commonwealth Bank.
