Home loan service Aussie has announced the appointment of Ian Corfield as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer.

Commencing at the start of June, Mr Corfield will take the position following six years as Bankwest’s Chief of Executive Business and Chief Executive Bankwest Retail.

Prior to his appointment at Bankwest, Mr Corfield held a number of senior roles at the Halifax Bank in the UK and Ireland.

Executive Chairman of Aussie John Symond said “I am really pleased the board has accepted my recommendation to hire Ian, as he was the stand-out candidate in my search for a new CEO.

“He has an impeccable pedigree with relevant experience at the helm of dynamic brands and also has extensive experience managing brands through a corporate transition such as Aussie is experiencing now,” he added.

In his time at Bankwest Retail, Mr Corfield was in charge of its third party broker business, giving him extensive knowledge about the specifics of the mortgage industry.

“During my tenure at both Halifax and Bankwest, I had the opportunity to manage change without losing the integrity, personality or points of difference of those brands. I relish the opportunity to maintain and grow Aussie’s reputation for providing its customers a wide range of options for their individual needs. I am looking forward to my role, and to working with such a dynamic group of people through this exciting period for the company,” said Mr Corfield.
