With two wins apiece in the past four years, the two big guns of the Australian aggregator market – Connective and Vow Financial – have agreed to add some extra spice to the battle to see who’ll be crowned the industry’s wholesale aggregator of the year in 2014.
In some good-natured competition, both companies have agreed that whoever doesn’t take the gong for 2104 will pay $500 to the victor’s nominated charity of choice.
Adding to the fun, senior executives from the losing firm will have to done its competitor’s polo shirt for a day – either Vow chief executive Tim Brown and national sales manager Leighton King or Connective directors Mark Haron, Murray Lees and Glenn Lees.
The awards will be announced in Sydney on February 28.
In other news from Vow, the company has announced the appointment of Dawn Inanli to the position of state manager for NSW and the ACT.
Ms Inanli previously spent nine years in the lending and aggregation market for Bankwest.
Vow’s Tim Brown said her appointment was part of the aggregator’s national expansion plans and “her experience and knowledge of how to build a successful diversified financial services business will prove invaluable for our growth in NSW and the ACT”.
