A commercial finance private lender has announced the appointment of a new business development manager in Queensland.
Renae Long (pictured) joins Aquamore to take charge of expanding the company’s Queensland metro and regional reach, by spearheading educational initiatives in collaboration with non-bank and alternative finance lenders, actively engaging in industry events, and evolving her already extensive network.
In her new role, Long, a licensed broker and business leader with banking and finance experience as BDM, will work with the NSW and Victoria BDM teams under the direction of Matthew Porch, head of distribution at Aquamore.
“I am extremely passionate about supporting my brokers to achieve the best outcomes for their customers and working with my team to achieve results – particularly for ‘out-of-the-box’ scenarios,” she said.
Long said the non-bank is a “good fit culturally” and supports her skillsets.
“On this note, my goal is to provide excellent support to brokers and the team, develop my current skills, and be at the forefront of industry changes, and use my industry knowledge and connections to optimise the company’s performance,” she said.
Prior to joining Aquamore, Long served as a BDM at non-bank lender MKM Capital for more than two years. She was also a director at FAMBrokers – Mortgage and Finance for nearly four years.
Porch said expanding the lender’s BDM team is a core part of its strategy to increase the company’s market share in a rapidly evolving commercial lending landscape.
Long’s appointment followed that of Narine Kalloghlian, who took on the role of BDM in NSW. Kalloghlian was an account manager then a senior loan writer for OnDeck.
