He’s one of the most well know faces in the hinterland but after 40 years in the banking industry, Geoff Edwards has decided to retire.

Since early 2013, Geoff has been involved in the management of the Cooroy and Pomona Community Bank branches of Bendigo Bank and has been unfaltering in his commitment to the hinterland and his customers.

“I’ve had some great opportunities during my career in banking, but using my role to make a difference to community groups, clubs, organisations and schools in the hinterland has been the highlight,” Geoff shared.

Geoff said it was the right time to retire and he’s very relaxed with his decision.

“I’m not going anywhere and my plan is simple. I’m looking forward to more time at home and more time for the special things with my wife and family, and to play some more golf,” he added.

“I have loved working with some amazing people in our team. Anyone who banks with Bendigo Bank knows who they are. The bank’s commitment to Noosa through the Cooroy, Pomona and Tewantin Community Bank branches continue to make a difference and I’m proud to have been part of that.

“Our Community Bank branches were born from the dream of our communities wanting their own banks. The branch teams will continue to working closely with our communities as more locals realise that by banking with us the more we can give back, giving our communities a real say in their own future,” he said.

Passionate about his work to his last working day, Geoff left us with this.

“They say that your retirement actually means that you got promoted to one of the best roles in your life. I’m happy with that,” he concluded.
