I would like to extend a warm welcome to two new staff members who have joined the company in 2012.

Iris Wang has joined our Dockland’s Office team and comes to us with a wealth of experience in finance, investment and mortgage broking. Iris has spent time working in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, but calls Melbourne home.

We wish Iris all the best and if you are calling in to the Dockland’s office and hear a new voice on the phone, make sure you say hi and welcome Iris aboard.

Rodney Clarke has joined the team in Brisbane and will be based at Iveco Trucks, Rocklea.

Rodney has a lot of experience in equipment funding and general banking having had a long career at both the NAB and Canon Finance.

Rodney has spent time in various States of Australia before settling in Brisbane with his family. Rodney is a keen cyclist so watch out for him on the roads.

We wish Rodney and Iris all the best.
