Rake comes to the ABCB with more than 25 years’ experience in senior positions across the public and private sectors. An economist and accountant by profession, his range of experience covers urban planning, asset management, financial management, human resources, consumer protection regulation, criminal and civil investigations, marketing and internal audit.
