The former CEO of Carlton & United Breweries (CUB), Peter Filipovic, will join HTL Capital as a Board Director of the Victorian operations with the company looking to expand its operations along the east coast.
HTL Capital was established in 2019 by former CBA executive Rick Woelms and HTL Property and the debt brokerage business has written in excess of $1bn dollars in the national commercial property market over the past year.
“Having been at CUB for 25 years, my next move was obviously one I have thought about deeply, and accordingly feel very comfortable aligning myself with HTL and its people,” Filipovic said.
“I’ve watched HTL participate within the hospitality industry nationally, and of particular interest to me has been the company’s professional behaviour with regard the provision of finance solutions.
“In my opinion this is an emerging market, and HTL are at the very forefront of where consumer expectations are trending.”
Woelms added: “Attracting to the company the unmistakable quality of professional Peter so clearly represents, is both rewarding and illustrative of the meaningful approach we are taking to our growth strategy.
“Peter’s involvement is also a precursor to further announcements regarding alignment with highly regarded business professionals in other states around the country.”
HTL Capital is a company with connections to HTL Property, which was formed in 2018 by Andrew Jolliffe and Dan Dragicevich.
HTL Property Executive Chairman, Jolliffe, said: “We will continue to look at particular categories within and around the property sector nationally, and where applicable will provide services that reflect best of breed operatives and market leading solutions.”
