Award-winning brokerage hires C-suite exec

by James Mitchell2 minute read

Top 25 mortgage brokerage 1st Street Financial has announced the appointment of Ofer Greenberg as the group’s chief operating officer.

Mr Greenberg brings 20 years of experience working for both domestic and international banks covering investments and lending. He recently left ANZ where he ran the private bank global markets product sales business.

Mr Greenberg will work closely with 1st Street founder and managing director Jeremy Fisher on strategic opportunities, acquiring brokers and growing the company’s footprint around the country. The pair will also look to expand 1st Street’s commercial and financial planning divisions.

“This is a really exciting opportunity and I look forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead. I think the current lending environment is ripe for growth in the broking industry and 1st Street is a leader in the independent space,” Mr Greenberg said.

“I am looking forward to be working with the banks rather than for the banks as I did previously. Jeremy has built an amazing business with great culture and people. I am proud to join the team.”

1st Street Financial took home two awards at the NSW Better Business Awards last month. The group was named Best Independent Office (5 or more brokers) while Cliff Ferrer was recognised for Best Customer Service (Individual).
