The Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia has appointed Bob Masalkovski and Maree Maditianos as new state managers.

Bob Masalkovski has been appointed the role of state manager for NSW/ACT while Maree Maditianos has taken the role of state manager for Victoria/Tasmania. Both have already commenced with their roles as of 1 May 2023.

Mr Masalkovski brings over 20 years of industry experience from both a client and aggregator background, previously holding the role of strategic partnership manager for NSW for PLAN Australia. Prior to this role, he worked directly with clients as a mortgage and finance broker based in Sydney.

Ms Maditianos joined the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) from FAST where she was a partnership manager for 15 years, having experience across residential, commercial, and asset finance lending particularly in helping mortgage and finance brokers find opportunities to expand their businesses.


Both appointees will join long-serving MFAA team members Wendy Robertson (state manager for South Australia/Northern Territory) and Natalie Price (state manager Western Australia).

MFAA chief executive Anja Pannek welcomed the new hires: “Bob and Maree both bring extensive industry experience and we’re excited to welcome them to the MFAA team.

“We know our members are extremely busy assisting their clients to navigate the current lending market, and I know Bob and Maree will be a great support for them.”

Mr Masalkovski stated he’s looking forward to advocating for the industry and MFAA members.

“I have a great appreciation for the hard work, commitment and passion mortgage and finance brokers have towards their clients’ financial wellbeing,” Mr Masalkovski said.

“Working within the banking and mortgage broking sector for over 20 years, I have an intimate understanding of the challenges we face as an industry, and will bring my expertise, experience and passion to extend the incredible leadership shown by the MFAA and continue to represent the interests of our members to industry and the broader community.”

Commenting on her role, Ms Maditianos said: “Working with mortgage and finance brokers to realise their potential is something I am passionate about and committed to, this commitment to brokers and our industry continues as I join the MFAA in the role of State Manager for Victoria and Tasmania.

“I have been involved in the mortgage and finance broking industry for over 25 years and have witnessed first-hand the amazing work brokers do, as well as the obstacles that the industry has overcome.”
