Transport Finance - Private Ownership

After a 4 year foray into public company ownership, firstly with Terrain Australia Ltd and later with City Pacific Ltd, I am pleased to advise our clients that Transport Finance Group is now back in private hands. The former director, Mr John Ryan, along with Mr Brett Bentley have acquired the Transport Finance Group back from City Pacific Ltd effective from 1st December 2007.

It would be fair to say that our clients have probably noticed little change to the service that they have been receiving since 1998, when the business was first established by Mr Trevor Roebig. We are very pleased to have the business back running as a small private business and look forward to ensuring that service standards are met and exceeded for all our clients, that our staff are rewarded for their loyalty and that we continue to grow the business by developing new strategies and keeping abreast of industry changes.”

Both Brett and I would like to thank our clients that we have met with or talked to for their well wishes and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their support and loyalty during this time.

We hope to see you in one of our offices soon, especially in our new Melbourne office just on the edge of the city in Southbank.
