Nodifi expands focus towards greater client support

The fintech has responded to growth in its partners’ needs, enlisting new figures to join its consumer credit and support teams.

Included in the announcement is the appointment of Lauren Blackwell, who will be joining Nodifi’s consumer credit team as a virtual business manager. 

Ms Blackwell previously served as the business manager of Edwardstown Mazda, a Mazda dealership located in Adelaide’s south. 

She commenced her role on 25 April.


Further, Nodifi has confirmed that it has named Francis Ycoy as a settlements officer. 

Prior to joining the fintech, Mr Ycoy served in a range of IT roles within the banking sector, with the most recent title being the IT security governance section head for the Philippine-based Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation, which he commenced in 2019. 

Mr Ycoy, whose tenure began 2 May, will serve under Nodifi’s head of support Elliot Bloem. 

Further, Nodifi has confirmed that it has appointed Henna Chugani as project manager of its web development team, and Danica Corbett as its inaugural people and culture manager. 

The fintech has said all four of these appointments will combine to reinforce “the business’ stance on dedicated partner support delivered with a suite of high quality digital solutions”.

Nodifi chief executive Tom Caesar added that these roles will tick important boxes within a larger strategic plan for business growth and development, specifically in how they align with the fintech’s prominent digital objectives.

The new additions came in the wake of a series of appointments made by Nodifi in recent months. 

Last month, the fintech confirmed that it had named a new BDM to cover both Queensland and the Northern Territory, with national sales manager Alex Bodriagin commenting at the time that Nodifi’s “expansion and growth of key resources will continue into the foreseeable future” and it was an “exciting time for the business”.

In March, Alex Brgudac, the former head of partnerships at SME lender Prospa, commenced his position at Nodifi as its inaugural chief revenue officer

In January, the former asset finance broker Peter Fullwood began his time as a BDM with Nodifi, covering Western Australia. 

“Having worked in the industry in metro and regional WA, I’m well aware of Nodifi’s potential to support businesses with their asset finance ambitions,” Mr Fullwood said.

Mr Caesar said at the time that Mr Fullwood was coming “on board at a time when numerous stars are aligning for the company and the industry as a whole”.

This expansion also came following Nodifi’s introduction late last year of personal loan products from SocietyOne, Plenti and Wisr to its platform.
