A prominent non-bank lender has announced the appointment of an industry veteran to its management team.
Australian First Mortgage (AFM) has appointed Marcell Midolo to the position of state sales manager- Victoria.
A veteran of the third party industry, Mr Midolo began as a mortgage broker before moving into several broker support positions.
Most recently, Mr Midolo spent five and a half years at aggregation group Connective starting out in the broker support division and moving into broker acquisition, driving the recruiting and sales side of the aggregator’s business.
Mr Midolo said the key thing he wants to achieve in the new role is to grow the relationship AFM has with brokers in the Victoria region.
“One of the things I am looking forward to doing is catching up with brokers from the other groups,” he said. "Taking that relationship to the next level, working with them to increase business”.
AFM’s managing director David White said Mr Midolo’s appointment fits in well with the group’s future growth plans.
“Marcell will feature prominently as we continue our organic growth plans and work on new products to release to the market.” he said.
“AFM is a national brand and we will continue with our strong marketing campaign this year promoting our brand and products to brokers,” said Mr White.
