Igor Stychinsky (pictured) has been appointed into the newly created growth role of chief operating officer. He previously worked with Liberty chief executive Aaron Skilton at NZ Home Loans where he was general manager strategy and transformation.
Also joining Liberty as a BDM is Andrew Mackay.
Mackay has previously had roles as a mortgage adviser at Astute and a business performance and sales coach at NZHL. Most recently he was the local owner of a Harrisons Solar store.
Skilton said the new appointments were a sign of growth for the non-bank lender.
“Particularly in uncertain times, we see a significant opportunity to support even more advisers and customers with our free-thinking lending and very competitive term deposits,” Skilton said.
“We are thrilled to welcome Igor and Andrew to the team. Igor has immense expertise and knowledge in growth and transformation strategies, and Andrew’s proven capability shows our commitment to building a market-leading Business Development team – now and into the future.”
Stychinsky joins the business next month. He says he is "excited to contribute to the growth of the non-bank market in New Zealand, as borrowers and depositors learned more about the flexibility and choice on offer."
“I am looking forward to joining a growing New Zealand team that is committed to delivering the best adviser experience in the market and providing customers with innovative solutions.”
Mackay looks "forward continuing to build great relationships with New Zealand mortgage advisers.”
“The focus Liberty has on supporting advisers to grow and diversify their business is exemplary.”
