A Western Australia-based broker group has announced the appointment of a new chief executive officer.
Professionals Finance has named Scott McTeare as its new CEO. Mr McTeare moves from general manager to the CEO position as the company looks to expand.
Professionals Finance chairman Rob Rooke said the appointment is set to drive the company’s growing market presence as its finance specialists move into more areas across Australia.
“We see this as a natural progression for our company. The decision was incredibly easy to make and has the full backing of our board,” Mr Rooke said.
“Mr McTeare brings an outstanding level of knowledge and on-the-ground experience to lead the finance arm. After 20 years of service building large award-winning broking teams, he’s passionate about the unique opportunity the company has.”
Mr McTeare said the broker group’s close partnership with Professionals Real Estate sets it apart from other mortgage brokers.
“2016 is going to be a huge year for the entire Professionals brand and its clients,” he said.
“We already have some of the country’s best young talent on our team and we’re ready to make a huge mark on Australia’s broking industry.”
