Aggregator BDM, joins Loan Market, bolstering growth team
Former AFG business development manager Tim McKenzie has joined Loan Market to drive the award-winning aggregator’s two-tiered business offering in the new role National Network Growth Manager.
After five years in business development and coaching roles across publicly-listed AFG’s New South Wales and Victorian operations, Mr McKenzie has made the move to family-owned Loan Market to help drive network growth across its traditional and newly unveiled Bring Your Own Brand (BYOB) models.
Mr McKenzie said: “I think a lot of brokers will be analysing the value and support they receive from their aggregator in 2020. There’s so much happening in our industry: digitisation, the Government’s (remuneration) review in 2022 and a lot more compliance issues to manage.
“Brokers are looking to secure their futures amidst all this change and I think Loan Market’s offering does that, and the addition of the BYOB model adds a new dimension, complementing their already strong branded offering.
“Loan Market has opened-up a wider array of solutions for brokers to build their businesses and arm them with automated marketing solutions and compliance-focused tech to keep them safe.”
Mr McKenzie comes to Loan Market from a multi-faceted role at AFG. He was responsible for recruitment across two states and also managed the business development and coaching for a portfolio of 200 brokers.
Mr McKenzie said he was buoyed by the positivity and opportunities in which Loan Market Group viewed the future of the sector.
“I think a lot of the optimism that’s coming out of Loan Market is a reflection of its family-owned culture and award-winning tech platform that helps brokers save time on every deal,” he said.
“Brokers are really looking for leadership amidst the current change and I think Loan Market has really stood-up in this space.”
Loan Market Executive Director, Growth Andrea McNaughton welcomed Mr McKenzie to the expanded Corporate team this week.
“Tim has worked closely with brokers to help them pursue and realise their business aspirations. He also realises how much time the right technology can save brokers and their clients,” said Ms McNaughton.
“He has a strong understanding of the modern challenges and opportunities in broking and he’s excited to introduce the unique Loan Market and BYOB models to brokers who want cutting edge tech, first-rate compliance support and an aggregator who is a true partner in assisting brokers to grow their business in an ever-changing and complex credit environment.”
