The non-major bank has welcomed two new additions to its broker support team this week.

On Monday (4 November), Bank of Queensland (BOQ) welcomed two new additions to the BOQ Broker team.

Former Loan Market business development manager (BDM), Christopher Emanuel, has now taken up the role of state relationship manager for Victoria. 

In his new role, Mr Emanuel is responsible for managing a portfolio of BOQ brokers, and has direct management of the state aggregator relationships.


Mr Emanuel has over 15 years experience in retail and third party network distribution, spending the last two years working as a BDM at Loan Market, and having previously worked in BDM and branch manager roles at Bank of Melbourne.

Meanwhile, Andrew Watherston has been appointed as BDM for SA, looking after BOQ broker development in this state.

According to BOQ, Mr Watherston will bring with him a “wealth of knowledge and expertise” accrued over a three-decade-long career, including 18 years at Adelaide Bank and 12 years at CBA.

Mr Watherston also runs his own business out of Port Augusta.

Speaking of the new additions, Natasha Kelso, head of BOQ Broker, commented: I’m delighted to welcome Christopher and Andrew to the BOQ Broker team.


"Christopher has more than 15 years’ experience in both retail and third party network distribution, while Andrew has worked in banking and finance for the last three decades.

"Their strong industry knowledge and relationship management expertise will be incredibly important as we strengthen and grow our broker networks in Victoria and South Australia, she said.

Both Mr Emanuel and Mr Watherston commenced their new roles on 4 November.
