CBA has appointed Alan Docherty as acting chief financial officer. He will take up the position from today.

"I am very please to have someone of Alan's calibre and experience step in to act as our Chief Financial Officer while we complete an internal and external search for the role," CBA chief executive Matt Comyn said.

"We are making good progress with the renewal of the Bank's executive team and I expect to provide an update on appointments to my leadership team in the coming weeks."

Jesudason joined CBA in 2011 and became CFO in July 2017, just before the bank was taken to court by AUSTRAC. Prior to that, he was based in Hong Kong as group executive for international financial services.

Docherty joined the bank in 2003 and was previously the CFO for institutional banking and markets.
