What's New in the Zoo?

There has been lots of going on at Velocity end of last year coming into 2016. Here are few of the goings on.

  • Velocity NorthShore welcomes a new Mortgage Adviser, Jaimie McDonald. Jaimie has a background ingrowing small businesses in the travel industry and is excited about transferring his skills to the financial services. Jaimie will be working with Rupert in their brand new offices in Takapuna, Auckland. Ifyou’re interested their new address is 445 Lake Road, Takapuna, Auckland 0622. 
  • There is also change afoot in the Wellington office. When driving down Vivian Street, looking left, you may have seen our Wellington new offices located at 22 Vivian Street.  We are excited to have some street presence and the grand opening is on Thursday, the 11th of February at 5:00 PM. You are welcome to attend. If you can make it please let us know via admin@velocityfinancial.co.nz.


  • In Wellington, we are  excited as 2 new advisers are joining us:  Katherine Mexted, who has a background in Commercial Law is joining Graham and will have a specific focus on working with small and medium-sized businesses and putting together comprehensive risk management strategies for those companies. This is an exciting new development for Velocity and a much needed service in that sector.

We would finally like to welcome Alex Barendregt. Alex is originally from the Midlands. He has a legal background and also plays rugby at a high level.  It was his rugby career that led him to New Zealand and Wellington is now home for him. He is so excited to join Velocity Financial. Alex is going to specialise in assisting our clients with their personal insurance needs.


  • So those are the exciting changes. Unfortunately, it is with some sadness that Sara Elemam has left us. Sara was with us for around three years both in a support role and was training as an Adviser. She made a decision to move back into the corporate land and is now back in a banking role. So we do miss Sara and certainly wish her all the best in her new role.
