Aussie bolsters executive team

James Mitchell 2 minute read

Aussie Home Loans has announced two key additions to its senior management team.

Giles Boddy has been appointed chief financial officer of Aussie, while Aussie’s current head of distribution, Vaughan Fowler, has been promoted to general manager distribution, boosting Aussie’s executive team to seven people, including executive chairman John Symond.

Announcing the appointments, Aussie CEO James Symond said the group is strengthening its senior executive team to ensure it has the right people in the right positions to lead the team successfully through our next growth phase.

“Both Giles and Vaughan have extensive experience in their respective fields of expertise and together they will join Lynda Harris, David Smith and Richard Burns as we continue to grow our retail footprint to 200 stores and beyond, and ensure we are match fit for the future,” he said.

Mr Boddy, who has more than 20 years’ experience in providing strategic advice to some of Australia’s largest financial institutions, including CBA and NAB, will be responsible for finance, risk and compliance, legal, and broker support and operations.


Mr Fowler has more than 25 years’ experience in distribution and management, with 10 years at Aussie in a number of sales leadership roles, including as head of Aussie’s fast-growing retail channel, which now has 180 stores across Australia.

“We are building a world-class support structure for our brokers and these appointments cement our dedication to having the best people where we need them as we continue to expand Aussie,” Mr Symond said.

The 2015 calendar year saw the Aussie Group lift settlements by almost $3 billion to over $21 billion, with nMB and Aussie’s retail and mobile broker channels exceeding their previous records.
