The Nationwise Group officially launched its new Asset Finance Aggregation Business at its new Sydney Headquarters in Macquarie Park on Tuesday, March 12th. This was a fantastic celebration of the hard work and dedication of the Nationwise and Viking teams to achieve such a milestone. They were joined by valued sponsors and business partners, who heard from Nationwise Founder and Director Graham Crouch, CEO Gus Kininmont, Viking General Manager Simon Gwynne, and Viking GM of Sales Wade Collins. 

Graham Crouch, Nationwise Founder and Director, spoke passionately about the group’s journey and the power of a great leadership team and announced the establishment of Viking Aggregation Commercial and Residential. Graham also shared two exciting new appointments: James Angus, the Chief Revenue Officer and General Manager of Viking Residential Aggregation, and Cath Ryan, the General Manager of Viking Commercial Aggregation.

Nationwise Chief Executive Officer Gus Kinimont shared insight into the strategic direction and its Vision to become a Super Super Market of Financial Services across Australia and New Zealand. Gus shared news about its expansion into the New Zealand market with the support of Nationwise Director Ben Sharp and the newly formed business Credit Comply, led by Jason Bridget. Gus thanked the lenders for their “unprecedented support” ” technology partner YouX, the brokers for putting their trust in Viking and the Nationwise team and partners for helping to “bring Viking Aggregation to Life.”

Viking General Manager Simon Gwynne was “humbled and honoured” by the tremendous support from partners and sponsors who have joined Viking on their journey, believing in their Vision and strategy. Simon paid tribute to the Brokers who had already joined Viking and thanked the wider Viking team for their hard work and focus on providing superior service and support to those Brokers. “One of the most important parts of any successful business is the quality of its people. We have established a very experienced and highly respected team to lead Viking. I’m super proud of the team and its achievements in such a short period, and I’m even more excited about what the future may hold.”

Viking GM of Sales Wade Collins reflected on the evening, saying, “Having this many people in the room from around the country gives us confidence that there is a genuine, shared belief in what we are doing and our commitment to creating true, meaningful business partnerships.”
