Loan Market names new CEO

Loan Market has hired a senior figure from ANZ as its new chief executive, replacing industry veteran Brian Greer who is stepping down from his role.

Amanda Savill will take on the top job, the adviser business said today.

Savill most recently worked for ANZ as head of its retail branch network in the North Shore, Auckland. She will start on November 23.

She has worked in the financial services sector for more than 20 years in a number of roles, including head of general insurance at ANZ.

Loan Market's appointment comes months after Greer confirmed he would step down from his role to spend more time in Dunedin.

Executive chairman Sam White said Savill was “an outstanding addition to the group”.

“She keeps the customer front-of-mind in everything she does, while her Executive MBA and National Certificate in Financial Services will allow her to implement our vision on the ground.

“Her interest and background in corporate innovation and technology, in particular, will be an excellent asset for the group as we reinvent the broker offering through digital engagement.”

White thanked Greer for his tenure in the top job.

“Brian has laid a tremendous platform from which Amanda can take the group ... Brian has made the transition as seamless as possible. We foresee continued growth and innovation ahead.”
