Ken’s Farewell Words

Director (and Ret. Commissioner) Ken Moroney Retires


Dear Members of the Police Bank,
After 19 years as a Director of the former Police Credit Union (PCU), and more lately, Police Bank, I formally tendered my resignation to the Board with effect from 1 July 2013. In doing so, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to the membership of Police Bank for their support during my period as a Director, and in particular, for the privilege of having been Chair of the PCU and Inaugural Chair of the Police Bank.

Whilst it is true that the strength of the Police Bank can be measured in its assets and reserves, its real strength is in its membership. You are the Police Bank. Confidently, the Bank now stands at an exciting time both in terms of its business model and its future, and as we approach our 50th anniversary, I reflect on the fact that we are indebted to so many who had the vision and the courage to establish and build an organisation of which we can all be proud.

I extend my appreciation to the CEO, Mr Bruce Williams, his senior Managers and all of the staff of the Police Bank. Thank you for the job you do, and do so well, on behalf of us all. Equally, I extend my appreciation to the Chairman of the Board, Mr David Walton and my Board colleagues for their commitment, service and selflessness. To Superintendent Robert Redfern, our new Director, I wish him well. He brings a wealth of background, skills and qualifications well suited to his new duties as a Director.

What then of the future? Family come first, but I will also retain links with a variety of groups including Police Legacy and the Kid’s Cancer Project amongst others. Of particular interest is the provision of extended mental health care and services in the Macarthur Region. In some small way I am glad to be able to continue to contribute to the police family.

Best wishes,
