Appointment of Managing Director

Sydney, 18 October 2019 – Tyro, Australia’s fast-growing business bank announces that its Chief Executive Officer, Robbie Cooke, has been appointed as Managing Director and is to join its Board of Directors with immediate effect.

In announcing the appointment Tyro’s Chairman, David Thodey, said:

“It is with pleasure that I welcome Robbie to Tyro’s Board. While Robbie has been with Tyro for some time, his appointment to the position of Managing Director is a reflection of his strong performance since joining Tyro 18 months ago. Robbie’s extensive career as CEO and Managing Director of two ASX listed entities well equips him to join the Board.”

Mr Cooke joined Tyro as Chief Executive Officer at the end of March 2018. Prior to Tyro, Mr Cooke held the position of Managing Director and CEO of Tatts Group, a role which concluded upon the successful merger with Tabcorp in December 2017. Prior to that, he served first as COO, and then as Managing Director and CEO, of Wotif.com over a seven-year period. During that time, Wotif.com scaled up significantly, achieved a circa five-fold increase in profits and undertook a successful ASX listing.
