AMP Bank has appointed a new broker state manager for Victoria, South Australia and Northern Territory.

Ex-major bank sales manager Laurie Duffus has been appointed as the new state manager. AMP Bank head of sales Glenn Gibson said Duffus’ solid experience in financial services and in particular the third party lending market would be a valuable addition and underpinned AMP Bank’s commitment to the mortgage broker market.

“AMP Bank is pleased to have Laurie, with his expertise and knowledge of the industry, join our team. Providing a high level of service and support to brokers and their clients is one of the most important things we do,” Gibson said.

“Laurie has a track record of building mutually successful business relationships with lenders and brokers, and he will be an integral part of building our success in 2015.”

Duffus has over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry, holding various roles in sales management, business development, leadership, credit, operations risk and compliance.

He has previously held sales and management positions with Westpac, Suncorp/Metway, Macquarie Bank, FAST, Aussie and NMB, and has worked with and alongside brokers for the past 20 years.
