Timothy Schneider, Choice Aggregation Services
”My biggest differentiator is my ability to connect people. And it’s also what I enjoy the most about being a BDM,” says Choice BDM Timothy Schneider.
After 15 years in banking, he’s built an extensive network of business partners, colleagues, leaders, peers and friends, “which means regardless of the situation, question or requirement, I will always have someone to assist with the solution”.
“Whether that’s putting a broker in front of a subject-matter expert or partnering brokers together to share experiences, I consistently see genuine value when these connections are made,” he says.
There are many layers to the aggregator BDM role, the most important being versatility Schneider explains. “Whether it’s compliance, marketing, business planning, networking, managing people, lending scenarios – and the list goes on – we need to be able to provide expert advice to help our brokers navigate the complexities of running a broking business.”
And when you don’t have the answer, you need to know who to turn to – that’s where those strong relationships count.
“Brokers need to trust in me to provide them with the right advice, connect them with the right experts and help them build the right processes and procedures in their business. … Equally, I need to trust my brokers to ensure they are providing the right advice to their clients.”
