The Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) has announced the appointment of a new director, effective immediately.
Mark Haron, director of mortgage aggregator Connective, will bring his extensive knowledge covering strategic management, operations, sales, relationship management, compliance and governance to the association.
“Over the past year, throughout the tumult of the royal commission, the MFAA has shown itself to be a true industry leader, having created, organised and activated the highly effective Don’t Kill Competition campaign,” Haron said.
“I am pleased to be able to lend my experience and expertise to the efforts of the MFAA as it continues to play a critical role in assisting our great industry to evolve and reform,” he added.
Before joining Connective in 2006, Haron was CEO of mortgage aggregator FAST, but his experience spans back to 1996 when he started out as a mortgage broker.
MFAA chairman Donna Beazley said that the new appointment will strengthen the association’s ability to face “the challenges involved in continuing to strengthen and grow" the industry in the future.
“Mark is an experienced and highly-regarded professional who has been a stalwart of our industry for many years. The MFAA will benefit greatly from his leadership abilities and intricate knowledge of the industry,” she said.
