Trevor Scott has been appointed as the new chief executive officer of PLAN Australia.
With more than 30 years experience in the mortgage industry, Advantedge’s general manager broker platforms Steve Weston said Mr Scott was a natural fit for the role.
“Trevor was the head of distribution for Advantedge’s white label lending products, as such, he knows what he is doing in the role and has the experience to stand up to the challenge,” Mr Weston told The Adviser.
Mr Scott’s appointment follows outgoing PLAN Australia chief Ray Hair’s decision to take up the position of chief executive at Australian Life Insurance from 31 March 2011.
“Having been recruited internally, Trevor understands what PLAN does and how its supports its brokers. So, in that respect it will be business as usual for PLAN brokers. That said, with a new chief executive comes new ideas and Trevor will be looking at ways to improve the business moving forward,” Mr Weston said.
"Trevor has a clear passion for third-party distribution and customer service. He’s also well known for his understanding of mortgage broking and what’s needed to help brokers grow their business – this means Trevor is well placed to continue the success of PLAN Australia.”
Both Ray Hair and Trevor Scott will be attending a series of PLAN Australia Professional Development days in each state during March.
