Pacific National Managing Director and CEO, Paul Scurrah, has announced his resignation.

In a statement online, Scurrah confirmed he will step down as of 31 December 2024.

“This decision has not been an easy one for me, as leading this remarkable company has been a highlight of my career,” he said.
