MFAA Prosper : Mortgage and Finance Brief 13
42 Mortgage & Finance brief The VICe PresIdenT name: scott Bolton Company: Aussie Manuka “When running a small brokerage, having the MFAA brand and assistance is a strong foundation upon which to build the business. “I see my role as a member of the MFAA State Council as having four primary elements: 1. To promote the strength of the broker channel to consumers and lenders. 2. To promote to consumers the benefits of dealing with an MFAA approved broker. 3. To assist and improve the profitability of the current broker model. 4. To raise awareness of the benefits of being an MFAA broker.” The TreAsurer name: sarah Wells Company: redconcierge “For too many years I stood on the sideline of our industry and felt that the change that was occurring wasn’t always for the betterment of each party. After attending an MFAA breakfast session I chatted with a number of people who are involved with the organisation and decided to stand on the belief I can make a difference. “Together with another broker, we took out an advert in our industry magazines to ask our peers to support us in our cause to bring grass root issues to the boardroom table. “Since my election I have passionately championed the needs of my fellow brokers. I hope members reading this article will stand up and believe they too can make a difference, and together create the industry association we crave.” The CounCILLors name: Michael Adams Company: Advance Investment securities Australia “The council is doing its bit to represent brokers and to bring the current issues that affect us all to the forefront. We all face the same problems and bring these up in every meeting – more often than not with ferocity! I love being involved because we can actually influence the industry in a positive way.” name: donna Beazley Company: Professional Finance Mortgage “I was working from Port Macquarie and servicing the Central Coast to the Coffs Harbour, and I found a lot of fellow brokers were missing out on the events and training that the Metro brokers have access to. We now have regular PD days and webinars across regional NSW.” name: Peter Beverley Company: The home Loan Company “As the Association refocuses on the broker/intermediary there is still much to do. As Chair of the State Broker Committee, new challenges and opportunities emerge in this industry daily. Be- ing a member of the NSW/ACT Council and its sub-committees is a good way to stay engaged with the industry and its members.” name: rob Fitzgerald Company: sAMLoans “I want to help shape the industry and to provide a collective voice. I have a diverse background having worked for a major bank for 20 years, and in the non-bank mortgage industry and broking for the past 17 years. I decided that now was the time to get involved and try to improve how brokers are treated.” name: stuart Garvey Company: Midstate Financial services “The industry is undergoing significant change, and I want to assist this change and have a thorough understanding of what is happening. With my experience, I will be able to assist regional brokers and the MFAA to achieve further growth in our industry.” name: Clint hawthorne Company: Australian First Mortgage “I chose to get involved with the MFAA because I was keen to give back to the industry that has been so fulfilling for me and my career. I enjoy working with brokers and my role with the MFAA council allows me to continue to help.” name: Fred obeido Company: Proforma Financial solutions “I love being part of the industry, but I want to make it fairer and more equitable for small and large brokers alike. I’m also really keen to guide and mentor new brokers to ensure the profession always reaches the highest standards.” name: ray slack Company: Macarthur Finance & Capital “I aim to improve the support to the commercial broker to allow commercial brokers to be recognised in the industry as professionals in having excellent relationships with their business clients and having the ability to deliver strong, commercially-focused finance strategies.” name: Val Tyson Company: Prestige Mortgages “While serving on the AMC/CMC sub-committee, I developed an idea to engage NSW regional members. We developed focus groups and I travelled around the state helping members form these groups in regional towns and cities. Today, I am actively involved in upgrading the focus groups to regional chapters and, once again travelling NSW regional areas promoting chapters to MFAA members, in an effort to further engage members.” ••• MFAA nsW/ACT sTATe CounCIL
