by Miklos Bolza21 Dec 2016
Pepper Group has welcomed Aaron Milburn to the business as its newly appointed director of sales and distribution.

In a statement, the firm said Milburn would bring extensive industry experience to Pepper. He is stepping into the new role after previously working as Westpac Banking Group’s NSW general manager for brokers.
Mario Rehayem, managing director for Australian mortgages and personal loans at Pepper Group, said an appointment of this calibre will build on the strong success of the lending business in Australia which offers mortgage, automotive and personal loans to Australians.
“Aaron brings strong leadership skills, a passion for education and deep relationships with the Australian broker network, which makes him an ideal fit for Pepper’s team and culture. We're excited to have Aaron onboard to support the many new initiatives we have planned for the business in 2017 and beyond,” Rehayem said.

According to sources which spoke to Australian Financial Review column Street Talk, Milburn worked at Westpac since early 2015 and is due to start in his new position at Pepper in late January.

    Reinforces my belief that all the quality managers are deserting Westpac as quickly as they can. Certainly can't blame them.
