Homeloans has achieved its “best mortgage volumes in three years”, according to the lender’s outgoing general manager of sales.
Greg Mitchell, who will end his 10-year stint with Homeloans on June 6, said the non-bank had positioned itself as a strong alternative to the major banks.
“I am leaving the business with the best mortgage volumes in three years, not to mention a great team of individuals with unique skill sets who have a belief and a desire that they will only gain more market share over the next 12 months,” he told The Adviser.
“Over the past 10 years I have focused on developing relationships with new funders and ensuring we have adopted and promoted new product to market before any of our competitors.
“I’m also proud to have built and trained a non-bank BDM force, one with a culture and understanding of their fit; we didn’t just replicate a major bank model.”
Mr Mitchell said he had resigned from the Perth-based firm because his role had demanded regular travel and time away from his family.
He told The Adviser he planned to stay in the finance industry in a state-based role.
“I have a number of opportunities and ideas, some of which may be of benefit to Homeloans,” he said.
Chief executive Scott McWilliam said Mr Mitchell would leave Homeloans “in a strong position” and “well-placed for further growth”.
