Rapidly growing full service non-bank lender Brighten Home Loans (Brighten) has strengthened its distribution capabilities with the appointment of business development and operations expert Brad Tefft as White Label Channel Manager.
Tefft joins Brighten from non-bank lender Oak Capital where he provided operational support for its merger with specialist finance provider Resicom over the past four months. Prior to this he was Resicom Operations Manager with responsibility for growing Resicom’s referral partner network by engaging with and onboarding aggregators.
In this newly created role Tefft will assume responsibility for managing relationships with and providing training to Brighten’s portfolio of existing white label partners, while also identifying and onboarding new white label introducers for Brighten’s residential home lending products.
Brighten Home Loans Head of Distribution Natalie Sheehan said Tefft’s appointment would help Brighten maintain its strong growth trajectory.
“Brighten’s white label distribution channel is growing at a rapid pace and Brad, with his proven business development skills, will help us maintain and build on this.
“At Brighten we’re nimble, agile and unencumbered by the problems many entrenched providers have, such as outdated legacy systems, complicated processes and layers of red-tape. Thanks to our robust funding structure, adoption of new technologies and focus on service we are seen as an attractive partner,” she said.
Tefft said he was looking forward to helping Brighten increase sales volumes. “I am delighted to be part of this up and coming challenger brand. One of the things that attracted me to Brighten was its reputation for providing fast and accurate support to its partners and I will be doing my best to enhance this,” he said.
