My career in banking and finance spans more than 25 years and includes executive level and branch management positions with some of Australia’s leading banks and independent financial services providers, including Suncorp and Credit Union Australia (CUA).
Interestingly enough I was responsible for establishing Suncorp’s very first mobile lending service into Sydney in the early 1990s, before setting up my own successful private financial planning practice on the Gold Coast. My career has definitely come full circle!
Over the years I have helped thousands of individuals, families and businesses to manage, grow and protect their finances through smart finance solutions, including:
- Commercial, Equipment and Residential Lending
- Personal Loans
- Car Loans
- Reverse Mortgages
- Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF)
- Wealth Management/Financial Planning
- Estate Planning
As head of Green Finance Group’s Cairns division, my aim is to provide you with a one-stop shop for all your personal and business finance needs, saving you time and money, and giving you peace of mind, knowing that you’ve got a team of experts on your side.
Home & Investment Loans
There is a seemingly endless choice of home loan options in today’s marketplace with banks, building societies, credit unions, specialist lenders and even online financiers pitching for your business. In just one consultation I can show you your borrowing options from over 30 banks and secure lenders so you’ll know:
- How much you can borrow from a range of lenders
- Pros & cons for a range of loan options & features
- Associated loan costs
- Deposit requirements & options
- Repayment options
Even if you think you’ve already found a good finance deal, I can review your loan package, including interest rate, to see if any further savings can be negotiated.
I can even help you to complete the loan paperwork, deliver the application to the lender of choice and, in some instances, have access to priority turnaround based on the high volume of loans Green Finance Group assist with each month.
Commercial Finance for businesses of all shapes and sizes
I work with business clients of varying sizes – sole traders, contractors, small to medium, corporate – both local and interstate, from a diverse range of industries, including:
- Accountancy/Professional Services
- Building, Construction and associated trades
- Marine and fisheries
- Fast Food/Hospitality
No matter the business size or complexity of your situation I have the practical experience, industry reputation and financial know-how to secure you a competitive solution for your funding requirements.
