ANZ New Zealand's Sharon Zollner gets top economist job

Sharon Zollner takes over from Cameron Bagrie.

ANZ Bank New Zealand senior economist Sharon Zollner has been promoted to the top job, replacing the long-serving Cameron Bagrie.

The country's biggest bank today named Zollner as chief economist, citing her skill in analysing and presenting macroeconomics and financial markets data. The ANZ economics team is rounded out with Philip Borkin, Con Williams and Kyle Uerata.

"As well as this excellent understanding of the NZ economy, Sharon is an engaging and highly skilled communicator who has a talent for bringing macroeconomic trends to life," ANZ Institutional NZ managing director Paul Goodwin said. "We're delighted to appoint such a strong internal candidate to this significant role."

Zollner has been with ANZ since 2010 and has previously worked at the Reserve Bank and Norway's Norges Bank. Since joining ANZ, she's developed the Truckometer, which tracks traffic flow as a gauge of economic activity.
