Aggregator hires experienced new state manager - Mortgage Mix (12 November 2013)

One of Australia's leading aggregators has hired a new state manager for Victoria and Tasmania.

Vow Financial has appointed Ross Laurenson to the position. He is based in Melbourne and has had a career in the mortgage and finance industry that spans back to 1979.

During this time Laurenson has set up, owned and operated a number of mortgage broking businesses. Most recently he was the principal of Yellow Brick Road Frankstown (VIC) where he was awarded both the 2012 and 2013 National Branch of the Year, Mortgage Branch of the Year and Victorian Branch of the Year.

About the appointment, Laurenson said it was time to give back to the industry - as a coach and mentor.

"I love to train enthusiastic people to master the art of being the best broker they can be," he said.

"I had kept an eye on the progress Vow Financial had made in such a short time. I wanted to be an integral player in the revolution and am looking forward to sharing the Vow aggregation model to those who are serious about building their business."

Vow CEO Tim Brown said Laurenson is a welcome addition to the Vow Financial family.

"His previous experience and knowledge of how to build a successful diversified financial services business will prove invaluable for our expansion and growth in Victoria and Tasmania," said Brown.
