"Tim Holmes was a giant in the mortgage industry” Rob Salmon said.

“He had a true passion for the business, was a great communicator and an inspiration to so many people who have worked in our company over the past 30 years,” he said.

Mr Holmes is survived by his wife Carol, his three daughters Joanna, Tiffany, Lucy and their families, including five grandchildren and his sister, Penny.

A non-executive director of the company, Robert Scott, has been appointed chairman of Homeloans Limited.
