Association calls for better support for new brokers

by Julia Corderoy29 Mar 2016
The Finance Brokers Association of Australia (FBAA) has called for greater industry participation in developing new-to-industry brokers.

These calls from the CEO of the FBAA, Peter White, have come after two of the association’s business administration trainees were recognised at the annual TORGAS Brisbane Awards Night for apprentices and trainees. 

Keeley Dickson was named Most Outstanding Trainee of the Year and Walter Maatthes picked up the Endeavour Foundation Community Spirit Award. In addition, FBAA operations manager Rebekah Davis was awarded Mentor of the Year Award.

“We all know Rebekah is an outstanding mentor to the up-and-comers in the industry but we were blown away by the calibre of trainees which came through our doors. Both Keeley and Walter showed a tremendous willingness to learn about the broking business,” White said.
“The FBAA is proud to again feature as a host company for TORGAS trainees and looks forward to helping shape the careers of future finance industry professionals.”
