Pepper makes two major appointments, strengthens BDM team

by Mike Wood21 Jul 2021

Pepper Money has significantly strengthened its commercial sales team with two new BDMs.

Michael Balshaw and Matthew Taylor will join their office in Victoria, while in New South Wales, Andrea Torres has been promoted to take on a Commercial BDM position. Cameron Louden moves from a Commercial BDM role in Victoria to Queensland.

Both of the Victorian appointments have experience on the aggregator side: in a 16 year career, Balshaw has been at both Connective and ALI Group, while Taylor arrives after more than a decade at NAB, Macquarie and Bankwest.

“These appointments are a direct reflection of the increasing broker support Pepper Money is providing as we continue to grow and help more Australian business owners achieve their financial goals with commercial lending needs,” said Malcolm Withers, Head of Commercial at Pepper Money.

“Commercial lending gives mortgage brokers more opportunities to diversify and help their customers succeed, building stronger customer relationships and becoming their go-to person, not just for their home loan but also for business solutions.”

“The team and I are passionate about making commercial lending more accessible to brokers, and fundamental to that is more broker education. With these new and promoted appointments, we can do this for more brokers and continue to provide the first class level of service Pepper Money is known for.”
