The Boorowa Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank has very recently appointed Darren Manton as its new business development manager (BDM).
The bank says that Mr Manton is a vastly experienced Yass-based financial services professional having joined Bendigo and Adelaide Bank in 2015 as a senior community bank manager.
Many types of business organisations from IT to news media employ a BDM.
A BDM's primary goal is to generate and facilitate new business, and their primary function is to nurture relationships with clients for this development to occur. That means using their communication skills, meeting people in person, as well as providing expert knowledge about the products and services the BDM's employer can offer.
