Goppy returns

Westpac's former head of third party distribution, David Gopperth, has returned to the industry in a regional sales manager role.

He is joining Mortgage Express as its new Regional Manager for Wellington and the South Island regions.

Gopperth has a long history in the finance industry, having worked at Westpac for 25 years, 11 years of those as the National Sales Manager Broker Channel. He has a strong track record of leadership and is highly regarded for his achievements in the industry, most notably leading the Westpac team to win the NZMBA Lender of the Year for two years running in 2010 and 2011.

More recently, Gopperth's passion for property saw him spending the past four years developing property, with a particular interest in project managing the rebuild of several “as is, where is” properties in Christchurch.

In his new role at Mortgage Express, he will be working closely with mortgage advisers to support them in achieving their goals while assisting with compliance issues. He will also be responsible for liaising with product providers.

“Joining Mortgage Express offers me the opportunity to work in an industry I’m passionate about, while supporting the mortgage advisers in an advisory capacity and working closely with real estate leader, Harcourts,” Gopperth says.
