“At Adelaide Bank, mortgage brokers are the core of our business. And a healthy, vibrant and competitive broker industry is fundamental to ensuring a robust home loan market.

“I am keen to work closely together with our partners as we navigate through the present changing environment. As a bank, we are fully committed to the broker industry and have a number of improvements to the interactive process in train for brokers that I look forward to sharing in the coming months.”

Mr Kasehagen added: “Our whole business relies on brokers and the valued relationships we have with brokers. Adelaide Bank is fully committed to growing in this industry.  

“Amanda has significant experience and a great understanding of the broker market, having been working in and around our broker offering for more than a decade. She is the perfect fit for the role, especially in the landscape of ongoing change currently upon us.”

He concluded: “I am also pleased to announce that Cosi Lanzoni has been appointed as senior manager of strategic partners, with both roles effective 17 December 2018. 

These new appointments will enable Adelaide Bank to further deepen our engagement and improve relationships with our brokers and partners to deliver an even better experience for customers.”
