Allianz BDM Sue Carolan wins BDM of the Year - Women in Finance Awards 2018


Allianz’s Business Development Manager Sue Carolan has been crowned Winner of the 2018 Women in Finance Awards ‘Business Development Professional of the Year’ category, at an award ceremony held in Sydney on Thurs 20th September. The awards recognise leading women across the financial services industry, representing high achievers from the financial services sector.

Sue was selected as the winner from a group of professional female finalists from organisations including St.George, Bank of Queensland, Macquarie Group and Commonwealth Bank to take out this prestigious award.

Sue’s nomination was strongly centred on her implementation of a Masterclass program for one of our key partners, Mortgage Choice. The program delivers a core focus on engagement, activity and results. During these programs, Sue’s portfolio in South Australia outperformed other states in terms of engagement, participation and utilisation of the Mortgage Broker Referral program, and achieved some record sales results.

Being part of the Allianz business for 22 years, Sue has consistently delivered at an outstanding level. Sue’s biggest success in 2017 was the on boarding of multiple new partners, in particular Aussie Home Loans. This was in addition to managing her rapidly growing portfolio in South Australia.

General Manager, Financial Institutions, Dan Tully, said the award win is recognition of the passion and commitment Sue brings to the business and our partners every day.

“Sue takes the approach of truly caring for her customers, bringing enthusiasm and positivity to all business partners at multiple levels. Her partners regard her as part of their team and they seek her insights and advice to support their business goals, as do her peers.

“Congratulations Sue on your strong relationship management skills and positive influence on your customers, colleagues and the Allianz FI business.”
