Loan Market Group Asset Finance will lead the strategic direction for asset finance within the group, inclusive of the Nodifi loan origination platform.
Mr Scollo isn’t new to the group, having spent over five years as the Victorian Partnership Manager for Choice. Mr Scollo will support brokers to write or refer asset finance deals, in addition to identifying opportunities to recruit asset finance brokers into the group.
Loan Market Group officially acquired aggregators PLAN Australia, Choice Aggregation Services and FAST from National Australia Bank (NAB) in 2021.
Loan Market Group Asset Finance General Manager, Jordan Mutton, commented on Mr Scollo’s extensive experience with Choice as pivotal to supporting the network from day one: “Daniel was highly regarded during his time at Choice and we’re thrilled to have someone of his calibre rejoin the group.
“His ability to provide outstanding support to brokers stems from his extensive experience in the industry, an attribute that will be pivotal to growing asset finance in Victoria and Tasmania, and supporting brokers respectively.”
Mr Scollo said he was excited to be joining the group, this time in an asset finance capacity.
“The team at Loan Market Group Asset Finance have built a compelling offering for brokers, underpinned by its loan origination platform, Nodifi — this makes my job a whole lot easier.
“What’s exciting is what’s to come from the team in particular from a tech perspective. I love that there’s a real focus on making things easier for brokers, whilst ensuring they remain compliant all while providing a great experience for their clients.”
Mr Scollo’s appointment follows recent additions to the group’s asset finance contingent, including Karen Valenzuela in Queensland, Ali McEvoy in South Australia and Joe Ventra in New South Wales – all joining the group within the last 6 months.
