by Mackenzie McCarty05 Apr 2012

ING Direct has added a final plank to its national broker distribution management team, naming Emoke Palos as its new state manager for Victoria and Tasmania.

Palos, who has previously represented both the Commonwealth Bank and Liberty Financial in their Victorian and Tasmanisan business development teams, has a high profile in both regions.

ING Direct head of broker distribution Mark Woolnough said Palos had a 'clear and compelling' strategy for improvement to the second tier's broker offering in Victoria and Tasmania.

"Emoke brings a wealth of sales management experience and knowledge to the role, with a background in retail bank lending across major banks and non-banks," Woolnough said.

"Along with this, she’s incredibly passionate about the Victorian market and is committed to building the ING Direct brand in the state."

Woolnough said she would assist in ensuring 'excellent' broker experience in her regions.

Other recent appointments include Andrew Cairns in Queensland, Tony Versace in WA and SA, Ray Esho in NSW and Sergio Delvescovo, who filled a role as national partnership manager.
