I would like to start by thanking each of you for your continued support and valued business. For those of you who I haven't been able to meet yet, now is a good time to introduce myself and give you some background about me.
I started my career in banking more than 25 years ago and have 18 years' experience within the debtor finance industry. I began as a Business Development Manager in 1998 and since then my roles have included Head of Debtor Finance at Oxford Funding, Regional Manager at Bibby Financial Services and now General Manager of Scottish Pacific Queensland.
Having lived in Melbourne all my life, the recent decision to accept the QLD GM role was a big one for me and my family. Particularly leaving behind my beloved Collingwood Football Club, the MCG, Flemington Racecourse, Rod Laver Arena, Albert Park and all the other sporting complexes that make up Melbourne. It is especially challenging living in Brisbane now, after being at the MCG in 2002 and 2003 to watch the Lions defeat Collingwood in those Grand Finals!
On a business front, I feel blessed to have inherited such a great business from my predecessors. We have 300 customers and 48 staff in Brisbane built up over many years.
At Scottish Pacific we run a decentralised model – one where your account is managed locally with local decision makers. Continuity of experienced locally based staff ensures we can continue to be flexible and tailor a solution to suit your needs. We understand that you will always prefer to deal with the decision makers, and for us that is equally important as we can make the most informed decision and structure the best solution that way. Locally based decisions is the cornerstone to our flexibility.
Our broad product range ensures we can offer a tailored cash flow solution to suits your needs. In addition to Debtor Finance we offer Trade Finance, Asset Finance, Progress Claim Finance & Bad Debt Protection.
Now that we’ve settled into life in Brisbane, I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the coming months. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me on 0413 066 990 or by email at .
