New Zealand-based mortgage software provider SuiteBox has announced the appointment of a new chief executive as it continues to expand its operations in Australia.
Ian Dunbar takes over as CEO from co-founder Richard Mannell, who will remain with SuiteBox in the newly-created role of chief operating officer to support the rapid growth of the business.
Mr Dunbar was previously SuiteBox’s manager for its Australian operations. He has more than 15 years’ experience working with global banks JPMorgan and UBS in Australia, Hong Kong and the UK.
“The [leadership] changes reflect the positioning of SuiteBox as a global provider of solutions to the financial services industry,” Mr Dunbar said.
“The majority of SuiteBox’s growth has come from Australia, and the business priority for 2016 is to rapidly expand in Australia and take the SuiteBox solution to new markets.
More than 250 financial services firms across Australia and New Zealand use SuiteBox’s cloud-based videoconferencing and live document collaboration app.
The app allows brokers to review, amend and sign documents – reducing the amount of paperwork and incorrect application forms.
Brokers can also establish a virtual room for each client, while clients can join a meeting room with one click and choose if they want to use the video features.
