Think Tank Group has announced two new appointments to support national expansion.
Commercial property lender Think Tank Group has appointed Cath Ryan to the newly created role of regional sales executive for NSW, as well as Heather Noonan to a similar role, covering the nation’s southern states Victoria, Tasmania, and South Australia.
Both appointees will head up third-party relationships across their respective regions.
Ms Ryan has more than 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry, most recently co-managing the third party channel for commercial business at St. George Bank. She has also held roles at Investec and National Australia Bank.
Thinktank CEO, Jonathan Street, commented, “We are genuinely thrilled to have someone with such a great knowledge of commercial property finance and depth of quality relationships with brokers as Cath joins us to head up Sales in NSW.
“We have no doubt she will make a significant contribution to the ongoing success of the team here and in being a key member in the new sales team structure nationally”.
Ms Noonan joined Thinktank more than a year ago, taking on a senior sales position. She held a number of senior positions at the Commonwealth Bank during her eight-year tenure, and previously also worked for ANZ Bank as a state broker manager.
Ms Ryan and Ms Noonan will report to Peter Vala, Thinktank’s general manager of partnerships and distribution.
Commenting on the two new appointments, Mr Vala said: “It is truly exciting to see such a tremendous ongoing expansion in the company to the stage now where we have a sales team of 19 with six on the ground in Melbourne, three in Brisbane and 10 in Sydney, and with three to four more joining before Easter.
“It allows us to build on the great broker and aggregator relationships we have by looking after them even more on an appropriately structured and vertically strengthened basis.”
