NAB has announced that Advantedge general manager, Steve Kane, will take John Flavell’s place as general manager, NAB Broker Distribution.
Anthony Waldron, the major bank’s executive general manager, Growth Partnerships, says Kane was selected due to his extensive experience in the industry.
“Steve has more than 30 years’ experience in financial services and is a long-standing industry professional who will continue our work to cement NAB as the preferred lender for brokers. [He] is highly experienced in the third party market and I am confident he will deliver this key strategic priority for our business and take NAB Broker to the next level,” says Waldron.
In his previous role as general manager, Advantedge Broker Platforms, Kane was responsible for repositioning NAB’s aggregation businesses - PLAN, Choice and FAST - and delivering three distinct platform identities to the market.
“We have reaffirmed our position as market leaders in aggregation,” says Waldron. “As part of these changes, the CEOs of PLAN, Choice and FAST will be elevated to form part of NAB’s Growth Partnerships Leadership Team. We recognise the significance of our aggregation businesses and will continue working hard to drive value for our broker partners.”
Waldron also announced the appointment of Phil Quin-Conroy to CEO, PLAN Australia.
“Phil brings more than 20 years’ experience in financial services, including more than 14 years with NAB’s third party channels. [His] experience in distribution and in-depth knowledge of the PLAN Australia business will strongly support the team as we continue to grow the business even further.”
Previously, Quin-Conroy was head of Broker Services for Advantedge and responsible for the back-office support to PLAN, Choice and FAST.
The appointments are effective immediately.
