Mortgage Choice has announced the appointment of Ian Parkes as chief financial officer, effective from 15 October 2018.

Mr Parkes brings over 20 years’ experience in the banking and financial services industry to the position, having held a number of senior finance roles at BT Financial Group, Westpac and St George.

Prior to joining Mortgage Choice, Mr Parkes was the chief financial officer at Homeloans Limited. He led the finance function with responsibility for all external and ASX reporting, financial control and investor relations.

Mortgage Choice chief executive Susan Mitchell welcomed Mr Parkes saying his proven expertise in financial services will be a valuable addition to the executive team.
