Lender expands team as it eyes national expansion

Better Choice Home Loans has announced that it has made several new appointments, including a new business development manager for NSW, a commercial underwriter and business analyst.

Mortgage lender Better Choice Home Loans has announced several new company recruitments as it continues its national expansion. 

Following on from the announcement that Better Choice Home Loans, part of the Finsure Group which recently merged with Western Australian bank Goldfields Money, had expanded its product base as a result of the new partnership, the brand has now revealed that it has brought on several new appointments too. 

Among the new appointments are Lili Barron, who has been appointed as NSW business development manager to“further boost” Better Choice’s sales and support teams. 


Ms Barron has more than 13 years of relation management experience in the mortgage space and has worked for various companies, including Suncorp, Pepper, ALI Group, Australian First Mortgage and Resimac. 

Better Choice’s executive director, Allan Savins, said: “We are very excited about Lili coming to Better Choice as we continue our national growth. 

“Lili brings highly valued industry knowledge and experience to Better Choice and we look forward to her contribution.” 

Mr Savins also said that Better Choice had also been “actively recruiting” for other key roles, including a new specialist lending credit manager and a new commercial underwriter. 

John Dickinson has been appointed as the lender’s new commercial underwriter.

“Our business is moving towards having dedicated experts in the specialist and commercial underwriting team to improve efficiency,” Mr Savins said.

“The new commercial underwriter has been recruited to support the growth of our commercial product range, which we launched late last year.”

Mr Savins also announced that the company has recently recruited a business analyst - Mark Rasmin - to “bolster the business improvement team”.

Further, the brand has hired four new loans processors “in an effort to continue to deliver on [its] service level agreements despite exponential growth.”

The new hires are: Alynta Page, credit officer; Lindsay Acueza, loan processing support officer; Renalda Quiogue, loan processing support officer; and Rizza Herrera, loan processing support officer.

Mr Savins said the new appointments could enhance the lender’s turnaround times.

“We’re experiencing high demand from brokers who want a lender who can provide genuine product solutions for their clients in a faster time frame,” Mr Savins said.

“With nine funding lines, Better Choice offers an increasingly diverse range of solutions to our introducers.”
