Resimac has appointed the former CEO of Southern Cross Financial, Luke Jackson, to lead its New Zealand business, effective immediately.
Mr Jackson started as Resimac’s head of New Zealand this week and will be responsible for driving the company’s nationwide growth strategy in New Zealand.
Resimac CEO Scott McWilliam said Mr Jackson’s knowledge of New Zealand’s mortgage and lending sector makes him a “well-qualified” candidate for the position.
He has previously held senior commercial lending roles with BNZ and ASB Bank in Auckland and was CEO of Southern Cross Financial for the last four years.
Mr McWilliam commented: “We are delighted to welcome Luke to the organisation. He is a respected leader in the financial services industry in New Zealand with the perfect skill set to leverage Resimac’s growth in New Zealand and lead it through the next phase.”
