AUSSIE HOME LOANS
There’s a new Symond at the top of Aussie Home Loans; in March James Symond was appointed the new CEO. Whilst the appointment was met with the familiar ‘the King is dead, long live the King!’ quips, the younger Symond has the advantage of already being a well-respected industry veteran, and has started quickly. Aussie has been on a recruitment drive; their 1,000th broker joined in June and Symond told Australian Broker that they plan to increase their loan writer numbers by a further 25% and retail store fronts by 15%. They’ve also on-shored their call-centre and announced a new HQ, and their annual conference in Melbourne was attended by record numbers. Read his exclusive interview with MPA in issue 15.9.
