Better Choice chief operating officer Natalie Sheehan said that Simon Adler has joined the group as state manager for New South Wales while Perth-based Paul Grant is the new relationship manager for South Australia, the Northern Territory and Western Australia.
The appointments follow Better Choice’s recent acquisition of Queensland-based financial services group Nationalcorp Home Loans.
Ms Sheehan said that Better Choice was focused on continuing to grow its business and was looking to further boost its sales team.
“We are delighted to bring Simon on board as our state manager in NSW and look forward to his contribution to Better Choice,” Ms Sheehan said.
“Simon was previously with Gateway Credit Union and has more than 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry.”
Ms Sheehan added that Mr Grant was also highly experienced, having more than two decades of experience in the financial services sector.
“Paul comes to Better Choice from Oak Lending, and prior to that, he spent more than seven years with Australian First Mortgage as a regional manager for WA and the Northern Territory,” the CEO said.
While typically known as a specialist lender, Better Choice has recently seen record volumes under its prime product suite, which offers market-leading interest rates for owner-occupied and investment home loans.
“We are experiencing strong demand from both owner-occupiers and investors which highlights how a non-bank can be a real alternative to the major banks,” Ms Sheehan said.
Better Choice last year consolidated Iden Loan Services, Future Financial and Pioneer Mortgage Services under the Better Choice brand.
