by BN04 Nov 2011

Mortgage Choice has called upon a Bankwest exec to head its NSW and ACT operations.

The company announced the appointment of current Bankwest national sales and operations manager of specialist sales David Ewens as its NSW/ACT state manager.

Mortgage Choice general manager of product and distribution Andrew Russell said the broker had received "an impressive number of quality applications" for the role, but had chosen Ewens in light of his experience with companies such as Bankwest, AFG, St Andrews Insurance and Westpac.

"It is fantastic that our business can attract high-calibre people such as David to help us drive the Mortgage Choice growth strategy," Russell said.

Taking over the role on December 12, Ewens said he would work closely with the NSW and ACT franchisee network to "contribute to the company's continued growth".

"I'm looking forward to better understanding and working through any challenges in consultation with the NSW/ACT franchisees so we can strengthen our support," Ewens said.
