Mike Pero received award for services to the mortgage broking industry
Back in 2005, Mike Pero was recognised for his services to the mortgage broking industry in the annual mortgage broker awards.
The Geoff Chong Memorial Award for services to the industry was presented to Mike Pero by the New Zealand Mortgage Brokers Association at their Broker of the Year awards.
The awards recognise outstanding achievement within the mortgage broking sector. The panel consists of other broker firms, lenders and banks representing the industry. NZMBA membership currently exceeds 800 members and the growth of this membership has also been credited to Mike Pero’s positive influence in marketing the use of brokers through his television campaigns.
Mike grew up in Aranui, a lower-socio economic Christchurch suburb, and has become a successful businessman and is recognised for his entrepreneurial and enterprising marketing skills.
He established Mike Pero Mortgages in 1990 and from the onset the company has been a clear leader in the independent home loan market with a prompted market awareness of more than 94% of New Zealanders.
In 2004 Mike sold the company, but he remains a share holder and is on the company’s board. He promotes the Mike Pero Mortgages brand as a consultant to the company.
Despite his many business successes, Mike Pero says that he was “very humbled” to be honoured with the award amongst his industry peers.
“I believe that if you have a business dream and are prepared to work hard at it, while giving to others along the way, then you can’t help but be successful,” says Mike.
“I’ve been lucky to have worked with an amazing team of people and industry peers. It’s when you serve such dynamic and talented people through good leadership, that you often find your own success,” concludes Mike.
The Broker of the Year awards were held in Auckland on Friday 15 September 2005.31.03.2010
