Investor Relations Manager (WA)
Linley Vogel commenced at Angas in September 2004. Linley has seen a lot of changes in the investment landscape during that time. However, she knows well the core business of Angas Prime as being a niche short-term lender to commercial borrowers based on first-mortgage security with a conservative LVR. Before coming to Angas, Linley was executive assistant to Kimley Lyons who was then a partner at law firm Jackson McDonald. Kimley is now Angas Prime’s Head of Compliance. He employed Linley in 1985 where she subsequently worked at Jackson McDonald, on and off, for the next 20 years. When Angas was looking for reliable and experienced team members, Kimley once again employed Linley, but for a role in administration and investor relations. Linley provides the personal and friendly service that has been a hallmark of Angas Prime for many years.
