The mortgage broking industry’s latest big moves


By Mike Wood

The world of broking and finance is ever-changing, and so are the people within in it. At Australian Broker, we like to keep you abreast of who is moving where in the world of lending, broking and banking, and with that in mind, we’ve added a section on Industry appointments to our magazine. Here’s a sneak preview of some of the most recent movers within the industry.

Will Keall, marketing outcome owner, Bankwest

Will Keall has recently joined the brand and marketing team at Bankwest as marketing outcome owner for the home buying product category.  In his role, he will be overseeing the development of marketing campaigns promoting Bankwest’s home loan propositions.
Keall says he is honoured to be working with such an established and respected organisation and brand as Bankwest. “Bankwest is one of Australia’s longest-established financial institutions, having played a significant role in the lives of customers and communities for more than 125 years, and it’s a privilege to be a part of that,” he told Australian Broker.

Keall was previously head of marketing at Sydney-based non-bank lender Resimac, where he was heavily involved in the consolidation of the Resimac and Homeloans brands and was instrumental in the relaunch of Resimac’s direct channel under

He says he is excited to be working in such an innovative and customer-centric organisation.

“There is a genuine customer-first culture at Bankwest, which makes you feel you’re actively contributing to the financial wellbeing of customers. The enthusiasm towards continually improving customer and broker experiences is inspiring.”

“There’s a history of innovation, from the drive-in bank branches of the last century to the Bankwest Halo payment ring of today. Whether the initiatives are big or small, you can feel the collective drive to deliver simple solutions to the issues that matter most to customers.”

Amanda Liszewski, lending specialist, Better Homes and Gardens Home Loans

Lending specialist Amanda Liszewski has been appointed to lead Better Homes and Gardens Home Loans. Liszewski has almost 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry. After starting her career as a stockbroker working for top-tier firms, she transitioned to mortgages. Her career has gone from strength to strength, and she was recognised with a nomination as a finalist in the 2018 Australian Mortgage Awards Young Gun of the Year category.

Liszewski prides herself on achieving premium results for her clients and helping them meet their personal goals. “At Better Homes and Gardens Home Loans, we believe our clients can ‘expect better’ when looking for the right loan solution, and believe our products and service proposition will deliver a genuine difference,” says Liszewski.

“Every client is unique, and we not only look at how we can help them now but also how we can set them up for the future. Rather than having a transactional approach, the team at Better Homes and Gardens Home Loans are committed to building a relationship with our clients to be able to cater to their unique needs.”

Aligning the business with some of the largest and most reputable developers in Australia is a key initial focus. These partnerships support brokers with genuine referrals as well as allowing for combined solutions to be brought into the market by aligning properties with broader finance solutions.

Liszewski is also passionate about supporting key charities such as KidsWest that share common values and enable a genuine connection with the community that makes a real difference. The home loans business is expanding its reach. There are opportunities for brokers to join the brand which is part of the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network, with offices in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia.
