Aussie Home Loans appoints Bankwest executive Ian Corfield as new CEO

Ian Corfield has been appointed as the new Aussie Home Loans chief executive, following the resignation of Stephen Porges last month.

He will commence his role on June 3 joining from Bankwest, where he is currently chief executive of its business banking division.

Bankwest is owned by the Commonwealth Bank, which also owns Aussie Home Loans.

Corfield is well experienced in the mortgage broker space having previously held the role of chief executive  for Bankwest's retail banking division between 2007 and 2010.

This included being in charge of its third party mortgage broker business.

Prior to that Corfield held senior roles at the Halifax Bank in the UK and Ireland.

“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," said Aussie founder and executive chairman John Symond.

“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.
