Resimac adds new member to NZ underwriting team

The non-bank lender has appointed a new staff member to the newly created role of senior underwriter in New Zealand.

Resimac has announced the addition of a new staff member, Dannie Wang, to its New Zealand-based underwriting team.

Ms Wang has been appointed as senior underwriter, a new role created to “strengthen” Resimac’s Auckland-based underwriting team and to support the lender’s ongoing growth.

The local team is led by lending manager, Vincent van der Kraaij.


Resimac said the new appointee has frontline and credit assessment experience in both residential and business lending, having worked previously at ANZ, Westpac and ASB Bank.

In her most recent role at ANZ, Ms Wang was dealing directly with the broker channel as a business underwriting assessor.

Commenting on the appointment, Luke Jackson, head of Resimac New Zealand, said: “We are so thrilled to have Dannie on board. She is a perfect addition to the team, comes highly regarded, and brings a strong skill set with her.

“The expansion of our credit department is a clear result of both the growth achieved and Resimac Group’s continued support in the New Zealand market.”

Across the ditch, Resimac Australia in January announced that its long-serving joint CEO, Mary Ploughman, will leave the company after 16 years of service as part of a new management structure.

Scott McWilliam – who held the title of joint CEO alongside Resimac’s original CEO, Ms Ploughman, since the Resimac/Homeloans merger in 2016 – will become the sole chief executive officer at Resimac.
