Non-bank lender top dog resigns

by Calida Smylie29 May 2014
Non-bank lender Homeloans’ sales general manager Greg Mitchell has resigned to spend more time with his family.
 
After 10 years with the company Mitchell has made a difficult decision to resign in order to spend more time with his family in Perth.
 
“This has been one of the harder things I’ve had to do in business. Hand on heart, I’ve loved my time at Homeloans. I honestly believe it’s the best place I’ve ever worked,” he said.
 
“I made the difficult decision to make the move after factoring in all the time I’ve spent away from Perth over the past few years, and the fact that growing business meant more of my focus and time would have needed to be in the eastern states. Hence, it became apparent it was time for a change for both the business and myself.”

Homeloans, which is nearly 30 years old, boosted its funding lines by entering a wholesale funding arrangement with major shareholder Macquarie Bank earlier this year, with a formal product launch in March.
 
Homeloans CEO Scott McWilliam said Mitchell has been a vital member of the team during his employment.
 
“Greg has been with the group since 2004, and during that time he has played a significant role in the development and success of our national sales team.
 
“Thanks to Greg’s management and leadership, he leaves the business in a strong position which is well placed for further growth.”

Mitchell’s replacement will be announced soon.
