In a bid to further enhance its position within the South Australian home loan market, Mortgage Choice has welcomed a well-loved industry veteran to the company.
After more than 20 years working with one of Australia's major banks, Amanda Scott has joined Mortgage Choice as the South Australian state manager.
Speaking about her appointment, Ms Scott said she was humbled to be working for such a wonderful company and looked forward to working closely with the company's South-Australian based franchisees.
“I have a significant amount of experience in mortgage broking, financial planning and small business management, and I look forward to bringing all that I know to this new role,” she said.
“Throughout my career, I have dealt extensively with the Mortgage Choice South Australian network. And, from my experience, I know the network to be filled with professional, ethical, hard-working mortgage brokers who are best of breed.
“So, when an opportunity came up to join Mortgage Choice as the South Australian state manager, it was a job offer that really was too good to refuse.
“I look forward to helping Mortgage Choice's South Australian franchisees grow and evolve their business over the coming months and years.”
Prior to joining Mortgage Choice, Ms Scott held various senior positions at ANZ. Most recently, Ms Scott was the bank's SA/NT regional manager, mobile lending. Prior to that time, Ms Scott was a senior business development manager with the bank for more than 15 years.
Mortgage Choice chief executive officer John Flavell said it was “wonderful” to have someone of Ms Scott's calibre join the Mortgage Choice team.
“Amanda's wealth of experience means she is ideally placed to lead Mortgage Choice to further growth in the financial services sector across South Australia,” he said.
“Amanda's previous experience with ANZ means she is already well known and well loved by everyone within the Mortgage Choice network. Her knowledge, intelligence and can-do attitude will put her in good stead.
“I am confident that Amanda has every skill and ability needed to help our South Australian network of franchisees grow, evolve and prosper.”
Ms Scott said she was ready to hit the ground running and looked forward to helping Mortgage Choice's franchise network and their customers make better choices for a better life.
“I am excited for this new chapter and can't wait to do whatever it takes to help my new network of small business owners achieve every success,” she said.
