Australia’s largest independently-owned mortgage broker, Mortgage Choice is pleased to welcome well-known industry professional Max Billi back to the company as its new VIC/TAS State Manager.
Max previously worked at Mortgage Choice from 2000 to 2003 in business development, sales and marketing roles before becoming VIC/SA state manager at Heritage Building Society. After two and a half years there, he moved to St George as Regional Manager VIC/TAS.
Max’s new state manager role will see him responsible and accountable for the states’ franchise network outcomes in relation to recruitment and overall business growth, while contributing to the development and implementation of nationally agreed strategies.
Mortgage Choice state offices exist to provide quality communication to the franchise network on the franchisor’s strategic direction and support the network with such activities as business planning, growth strategies, lead generation and conversion, and professional development.
Mortgage Choice CEO Michael Russell said Max is well equipped to provide the direction, leadership and coaching needed to ensure the VIC/TAS franchise network increases its business generation skills.
“We are delighted to welcome Max into our state management team,” he said, “It speaks volumes that he has chosen to work at Mortgage Choice again, and we welcome him back to undertake such an important leadership role.”
“The company is broadening its offering, focusing on recruitment and fine tuning the support we provide to our franchise network while encouraging improved productivity of every business. With over 28 years in banking and finance, having held senior position across sales, business coaching, marketing and people management, Max is a valuable addition.”
Max said, “I’m really excited to be back. The primary responsibility of the VIC/TAS State Office team is to protect the system and brand integrity whilst supporting the entrepreneurship and flexibility of our network, and I fully intend to see that through.”
“My previous roles of Mortgage Choice field marketing manager and business development manager plus my lending industry experience have equipped me well for this position.”
