Moula announce new BDM for South Australia

by Mike Wood11 Jun 2021

Moula, one of the biggest names in the Australian SME fintech game, have announced a new BDM to work with their commercial brokers in South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania.

Kathryn Skok will join the team from OnDeck Australia, where she was a BDM for two years, based out of Sydney and then Adelaide.

“I’m excited to work with brokers across South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania in my new role at Moula,” she said.

“Part of my role is building brand awareness in the South Australian market, as we’ve never had an SA-based BDM on the ground full-time. My aim is to help brokers access finance for their clients, with fast turnaround times and the best possible service.”

Skok’s work is already underway, having kicked off in April.

“While I may be newer to the industry than others, I’ve quickly gained a reputation for my solutions focused approach,” she says.

“I’m focused on getting back to brokers in a timely manner, returning calls within the hour, and if I can’t help directly, referring business to others.”

Skok says she was initially drawn to her new role because of Moula’s reputation in the industry the attractiveness of its unsecured lending product, which has no early repayment fees, and the company’s collaborative, tight-knit team. Her goals include achieving month-on-month growth across SA, WA and Tasmania.

“Working closely with underwriters is an advantage for a BDM; our underwriting team is only ever one quick call away and always willing to talk through what we need to reach the right outcome for any particular client.”

The new hire comes fresh on the back of Moula’s adaptation of AI tech, which will see turnaround times drastically reduced thanks to artificial intelligence. Their AI backend will help them to make ultra-fast lending decisions and could reduce the approval time to as low as two hours.
