"Tony's breadth of financial service leadership experience means that he is well positioned to grow Westpac's mortgage broker business," he said.
"Westpac's third-party distribution network is an integral part of the bank's strategy, with approximately 45% of all new residential home lending business written through the broker channel."
MacRae replaces Huw Bough, who will be returning to RAMS as its new GM, Franchise business.
In acknowledging him for his work with Westpac's third-party broker distribution division, Coombe said that Bough had put it in a "very strong" position.
"Huw's exemplary leadership over the past three years has delivered a stronger mortgage broker business as well as building deepened and well respected relationships with all of Westpac's brokers, aggregator partners and industry stakeholders. We wish him all the very best in his new role."
MacRae and Bough will start their new roles on the 14th and 17th of October respectively.
