I am the founder of Loans Actually and Director of the mortgage broking Specialists Pty Ltd.

Having been involved in the finance industry since 1970, initially with the Commonwealth Bank in mostly lending and loan management roles, I decided to set up my own mortgage broking business ”Lending Specialists” in 1999. It has been a thrill to have received regular recognition from within the industry for my quality of service and loan production throughout this time.

Having always had an interest in lending, coupled with my extensive personal and business lending experience, I find I have the expertise to see solutions to even the most complex problems. I am acknowledged as a progressive thinker and with so many connections in the industry have a proven reputation for assisting my clients to achieve both their financial and personal goals.

When looking for ways to help develop the next group of mortgage brokers in the industry I decided to build a member based mortgage broking team, and that is how Loans Actually came about.

Being highly regarded in the mortgage industry (as reflected by my many PLAN Australia Awards and acknowledgments) and in conjunction with my commercial lending background and successful business ownership, I have an important understanding and empathy with the business community and with my Loans Actually members.

I enjoy using my experiences to help members of the Loans Actually Group grow their businesses, but most of all I just enjoy meeting and helping people.

I hold a Diploma in Financial Services (Finance/Mortgage Broking Management) and am an MFAA Authorised Mentor.
