The two new managers, Peter Brown and Kate Brewster, have more than 25 years’ experience in credit management between them, both having worked for major financial services firms around Australia.
“Our brokers have direct access to credit managers, so it’s great to have Peter and Kate on board,” Homeloans general manager of sales Ray Hair said.
“They’re both looking forward to being hands on and part of the Homeloans process,” Mr Hair said.
Mr Brown has previously managed credit assessment for PAYG and self-employed borrowers.
He has worked for Pepper Austraia, and his experience also includes being an underwriter/ claims adjudicator for Genworth Mortgage Insurance.
“Homeloans has access to a wide range of wholesale funding sources that cover a wide range of lending scenarios,” says Mr Brown said. “From simple deals to non-confirming loans, working with brokers and being part of the lending process, I find it all very satisfying.”
Ms Brewster joins Homeloans having previously worked with major financial institutions Macquarie Bank and Commonwealth Bank.
“My credit experience of working for large financial firms is a great asset in my role at Homeloans,” she said. “I’m looking forward to working with a range of funders and the opportunity to provide the solutions that meet the needs of brokers and their clients.”
The new credit managers complement the recently enhanced BDM team in Sydney.
