LoanKit is seeking to boost WA recruitment via the appointment of new state manager Barry Harrison.
The aggregator, which saw 20% national growth in broker numbers in the six months to December 2011, said it had added former PLAN state manager Barry Harrison to recruit the 'best in the west'.
A former broker with experience in institutional sales and management roles, Harrison has been charged with leveraging "robust industry contacts" and providing a permanent WA recruitment presence.
LoanKit CEO Simon Dehne said in a statement: “Barry has the industry experience and contacts that will prove lucrative to our expansion plans in Western Australia."
Harrison's role will include assisting the existing WA broker network with industry knowledge, resources and coaching that will help them drive business growth.
Harrison said he will relish the new position, and would strive to help LoanKit become a "major player".
“I strongly believe in the proposition of this business – providing tailored solutions to established broker groups who are not satisfied by a one-size-fits-all philosophy," he said.
