Leighton King | National Sales Manager, Vision Aggregation

How and when did you join Vision and what is your role?

 I joined Vision in June 2019 I am directly involved in recruiting new broker groups to Vision.

What do you enjoy most about working at Vision?

I have had a long history in the mortgage broking industry dating back to 1992. More recently specifically in recruitment roles.
I enjoy the culture, the people and the challenge of growing broker numbers.

How did you get into the mortgage broking industry?

I was asked to open a mortgage broking branch in a new office in Parramatta for an existing business I had dealt with during the early 90’s.

What advice would you offer someone joining the industry?

Enter the industry because you get joy from assisting people, less about the money and more about customer outcomes….success will follow. 

What challenges are you facing with the current climate?

It’s a time like no other, that said the market conditions and competition is as vigorous as ever. The move from one aggregator to another is still much more complicated than it should be. It’s largely a manual task in an automated society.

What do you do in your spare time?

I enjoy visiting my farm at Gloucester and tending to my 40 cattle as well as spending time with my wife and extended family. 

What makes you laugh?

My family will tell you I entertain myself , which is probably correct! 🙂
