A Loan Market broker will have a local street named after him for his “services to the community,” said Ipswich City Council.
Mark Winter, a former Loan Market International Broker of the Year, helped establish a rugby club in the area, and was heavily involved in assisting victims of the 2011 floods.
“You usually only see sports stars getting streets named after them, not your run-of-the-mill mortgage broker like me,” said Mr Winter.
“I have lived in the area for many years and I have always had a passion for the Ipswich region and Brisbane’s western corridor,” he said.
Mark Winter Court is located in a new estate in Ipswich’s Bellbird Park.
