Non-bank lender Homeloans has created two new roles to grow the third-party sales team and help support future growth.
The ASX-listed lender has created two new regional sales manager (RSM) positions to bolsters its third-party distribution.
The two RSMs will reportedly assist in managing the sales team on a day-to-day basis and will provide hands-on leadership. They will also work closely with Homeloans’ business partners and aggregators while continuing to manage existing broker relationships in their current BDM roles.
Two existing BDMs, Rodney Cottam and Steve Wallace, have been appointed into the new RSM positions.
Effective immediately, Mr Cottam will manage sales for New South Wales and Queensland, while Mr Wallace will be RSM for Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
“We are delighted to announce the promotion of both Rodney and Steve into these newly created strategic roles,” said Daniel Carde, Homeloans’ general manager for third-party distribution.
“Our third-party sales team has grown significantly in the last 12 months and these additional leadership and mentoring resources will support our plans for future growth.”
Mr Carde continued: “Both Rodney and Steve have a wealth of previous management experience, specifically leading teams with a common goal in mind.
“They are both strong sales professionals who are well respected and passionate about the third-party channel.
“I have no doubt they will both add real leadership and strategic value to the business.”
Mr Wallace joined Homeloans in 2001 and has over 30 years’ experience in the finance industry, half of which is in mortgage broking.
Mr Cottam, who previously served in the Australian Army, joined Homeloans in 2013 and has over 13 years’ finance experience.
