Non-bank lender, Homeloans has bolstered its NSW team with the appointment of two new credit managers to support its broker network.

The two new managers, Peter Brown and Kate Brewster, have more than 25 years’ experience in credit management between them, both having worked for major financial services firms around Australia.

Brown has previously managed credit assessment both for PAYG and self-employed borrowers. He has previously worked for Pepper and as an underwriter and claims adjudicator for Genworth Mortgage Insurance.

Brown says he is looking forward to being a part of such a dynamic lender.

“Homeloans has access to a wide range of wholesale funding sources that cover a wide range of lending scenarios. From simple deals to non-confirming loans, working with brokers and being part of the lending process… I find it all very satisfying.”

Brewster joins Homeloans having previously worked with major financial institutions Macquarie Bank and Commonwealth Bank. She says this experience has set her up to excel at Homeloans. 

“My credit experience of working for large financial firms is a great asset in my role at Homeloans. I’m looking forward to working with a range of funders and the opportunity to provide the solutions that meet the needs of brokers and their clients.”

Ray Hair, Homeloans’ general manager sales says the new credit managers complement the recently enhanced BDM team in Sydney, further strengthening the NSW team as the housing finance market continues to grow.

“The increased demand for mortgages is driving demand for our services. Bolstering our NSW team means we have the capability to provide solutions to meet this need,” he said.
