AFG Home Loans has named former head of sales and operations Chris Slater as its new general manager.

Slater has been with AFG for eight years, where he started out as a National Account Manager. He was appointed head of sales and operation in 2013 for the company’s home loans division.

“Chris has been a key player in growing this part of our business. AFG is a holistic provider of financial services and the AFG Home Loans division is a key plank of our business strategy,” managing director Brett McKeon said.

“We offer the best support, systems and business opportunities for our member brokers in the market, and our commitment to our own label division means we can tailor our own products to suit our members’ needs.”

“Chris knows our business, knows our members and knows what needs to be done to deliver the results this part of the company is capable of.”
