Digby Butcher has been appointed to the newly-created role as Director of Mortgages and Lending at Aurora Financial.
Aurora is an Auckland-based firm which recently launched its own KiwiSaver scheme. It is now looking to grow mortgage advice and has appointed Butcher to this new role.
Previously Butcher spent nearly seven years with Threefold Advisors as an adviser and client services manager.
Aurora managing director Simon Rolland says Butcher brings a "huge skillset, and knowledge as we look to scale our mortgage business."
"Digby is passionate about giving clients the best advice and deals around their home loans and is looking forward to the challenge of growing our team across the country."
His role includes growing the business, overseeing tricky transactions, ensuring advisers provide a high standard of advice and looking after the back end of the business.
