A boutique brokerage has appointed Dino Pacella to the role of national manager, partner acquisition for the new arm of its business created just over a year ago.
Simplicity Loans & Advisory launched online portal Marketplace Finance to help brokers write and manage complex commercial loans with ease, regardless of their previous experience.
In his new role, Pacella will be responsible for raising awareness throughout the industry of how Marketplace Finance can be utilised to help clients achieve their goals.
“I’m looking forward to assisting our partners on identifying, analysing and – most importantly –capitalising on commercial lending opportunities through the Marketplace Finance solution and delivering true diversification by combining technology, years of commercial industry experience and true client passion,” Pacella said.
The new appointment expressed further excitement over joining a company where “people are the core focus” of the organisation.
“I believe in surrounding myself with the right people who share the same values and work towards forming and maintaining relationships built on trust,” he explained.
“I've known the managing directors, Jean-Pierre Gortan and Matthew Johnson, for some time now and we not only share a passion for helping our clients achieve their personal and financial goals, but also care about doing the right thing and giving back to the community.
Pacella has spent over 15 years in financial services, most recently holding BDM roles at Capify and Suncorp Bank.
His deep passion for the broking industry was made evident when Pacella launched National Finance Brokers Day in 2015 in a bid to build awareness and educate consumers across Australia about the many advantages of dealing with a broker.
Simplicity co-managing director Matthew Johnson warmly welcomed Pacella to the company.
“Dino will be working closely with our sales and fulfilment teams to ensure deals are progressed through to settlement with the highest level of integrity and transparent communication,” he said.
“We are pleased to welcome Dino to our growing team, and are looking forward to tapping into his expertise to uncover new opportunities and help the business reach new milestones.”
