Meet Adam Gilchrist
When Suncorp Bank looked for an ambassador to help promote our community programs, we knew we’d found the perfect one in Adam Gilchrist.
Not only is Gilly one of Australia’s most inspiring cricketers, he’s also heavily involved in the community.
Widely hailed by critics as the greatest wicketkeeper/batsman to have ever played the game, Gilly lays claim to hitting the most sixes in Test cricket – 100 to be precise. He is also regarded as an inspiring team player, taking over 400 dismissals in one day internationals as well as scoring over 8,699 runs at a phenomenal strike rate of almost 97 runs per 100 balls.
In 2004 he was selected in Richie Benaud’s All Time Greatest Team, sharing this illustrious honour with fellow Australians Sir Donald Bradman, Dennis Lillee and Shane Warne. As recognition for his lifetime achievements, this year Adam has been chosen to receive an Order of Australia.
Now Gilly has swapped his Baggy Green for a wide brimmed hat as he sets out to shed light on the importance of being Sunwise. We’re proud to have him on our team.
“Through its various community programs and initiatives, Suncorp Bank helps raise much needed funds for charities right across the country as well as protecting Australians from the dangers of skin cancer. I’m proud to be involved with a bank that gives so much to the community.”
