"My learning curve was starting to flatten out and I was looking for a new challenge. Out of the blue, one of my colleagues recommended the Westpac Equilibrium program."
Bringing 25+ years' worth of global fast moving consumer goods experience, Rebecca is now part way through the year-long tailored program at Westpac, absorbing new skills and networks to accelerate her career as a banking and finance leader.
"It's an amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity where I am meeting incredible people right across the business and learning every day. I'm new to Westpac but see already that flexibility and respect for our lives outside of work is integral to the culture," she said.
Rebecca Meli joined the Equilibrium Program in 2015 and has been working with the Sydney CBD Retail teams delivering Home Loan Opportunities and implementing training across various teams.
