Liberty adds a Wellington-based BDM

Liberty has appointed Grant Parker as a business development manager for Wellington and the mid-lower North Island, strengthening the non-bank’s adviser support.

Parker comes to Liberty with a background in business development and relationship management in the private and public sectors.

"His passion for helping others grow, and his unique skillset has helped him build a large network within the financial services industry," the company says in a statement.

"With almost 15 years in business development and relationship manager roles within the insurance industry, Parker brings a fresh perspective to the role at Liberty. He has a proven track record in training and development, sales and building and nurturing successful relationships – not only in a professional sense, but with over a decade as a basketball coach within the community."

Parker said: “Culture and communication are essential elements for success in any profession. I look forward to using my strengths in these areas to connect with advisers, better understand their business and goals, and help them grow.”

Liberty chief executive Aaron Skilton said Parker’s appointment was a clear sign of confidence, growth, and continued dedication to the adviser community.
