Aggregator appoints new BDM in national expansion

by Rebecca Pike21 Apr 2018

Mortgage aggregator Finsure Finance & Insurance (Finsure) is continuing its national expansion with a new appointment to its Victorian Business Development Management team.

Chris Patsouras has more than 20 years of finance and mortgage broking industry experience. He’ll be supporting existing brokers and onboarding new additions.

The team is headed by Finsure’s general manager of sales, Simon Bednar. He said, “Chris is a fantastic addition to Finsure’s Melbourne office with more than two decades of experience and he brings a key skillset to our business development team to support our continued growth.

“Chris has held key management, coaching, lending and sales positions in the industry, including roles with Mortgage Choice and the Commonwealth Bank, and he has gained valuable experience into what drives a broker to succeed and the tools and resources they need.

“Just seven years since we established Finsure, the Group now has more than 1400 brokers. We expect to have more than 1600 brokers by the end of 2018 and a $32billion loan book.”

Patsouras said he was excited by the challenges at Finsure and helping the business development team drive the Group’s continued growth. He added, “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the Finsure journey.”

Finsure’s rapid growth since it was established in 2011 achieved further recognition last year with its second consecutive listing in the Australian Financial Review’s Fast 100 list and receiving Best Australian Mortgage Aggregator at the APAC Insider Australian Enterprise Awards.
