Commonwealth Bank


Santa Maria

Hi, I’m Nigel Santa Maria, President of the Wanneroo Business Association. With over 30 years’ experience in Banking & Finance, I started my career at the Commonwealth Bank, resulting in winning a number of banking awards, 10 years in successful leadership roles, including WA State Manager for Commercial Broking, and Executive Manager for Commonwealth Private, before moving to NAB to head up the NAB’s Asian Banking Suite in 2014.

I then worked as a Senior Business Lending Consultant at Provident Business & Lending Solutions for two years, before being asked to return to NAB, as a Senior Business Banking Manager at NAB Business Banking.

I returned to CBA in October 2021, as a Relationship Executive, looking after a portfolio of diversified clients in the SME market.

I am a passionate believer in creating a high performance culture based on client-centric quality service where value surpasses price.

As President of the Wanneroo Business Association, I am excited to build on the momentum we currently have, to capitalise on the opportunities we see in front of us. We are now in a good position to crack on and continue delivering against this momentum we have, and I look forward to serving the Wanneroo Business Association and the community for another two years.


I am also an avid cyclist, which inspires me to give back to the community, by undertaking community service and a number of fundraising events in the not-for-profit sector, primarily CanTeen, MSWA, and more recently CAHOOTS. To this end, I was honoured to participate in the 2018 Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay, as recognition for outstanding service to the community.
