Aggregator Connective has added a state manager in SA, bringing overall team growth in 2011 to 50%.
Following the appointment of Renee Blethyn as WA sales manager last month, Connective has named former mortgage broker and BDM Justine Hockey as sales manager for South Australia.
Hockey spent several years with brokerage About Finance, and has also held business development roles at AAMC Training Institute and government agency Advantage SA.
Connective principal Murray Lees put the appointment down to a desire to capitalise on opportunities and maintain service following membership growth in the state, with numbers up 17% over the past 12 months.
"Having a dedicated resource on the ground will assist us to continue our expansion," he said.
Hockey said she was a "born and bred South Australian" and knew the market intimately.
