Anthony Justice, a financial services industry veteran, has been named as the new CEO of uno Home Loans, replacing Vincent Turner, who recently transitioned to the role of chief innovation officer.
The incoming CEO spent a decade in a number of senior management roles within financial services and energy firms, including as CEO of Insurance Australian Group’s Australian Consumer Division as well as its chief customer officer.
He also held management and operations roles at UK-based brokerage Halifax Investment Services.
Speaking of the appointment, uno chairman Abi Cleland said: “Anthony has extensive financial services experience, an impressive track record of leading and transforming customer-focused businesses, and strong alignment with uno’s values.
“We are delighted Anthony has come on board to lead the charge as uno ramps up its growth trajectory and continues to shake up the home loan industry.”
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Justice said: “Getting a home loan is one of the biggest financial decisions most people will ever make, but the mortgage experience often falls short of customer expectations.
“I share uno’s passion for reinventing the customer experience and am excited to come on board at a time when the industry is ripe for disruption. I look forward to empowering more Australians with a new way to get a home loan.”
Westpac has a 90 per cent stake in uno, having invested more than $50 million.
