With over 27 years’ experience in banking and financial services, championing small business is what really drives me. Our role as a bank is to help people do business – and nowhere does that have more impact than with the SME community, arguably the most powerful economic and social cohort in Australia.

The pace of change requires agile thinking and reimagined business models – and this applies to us just as much as it does to our client base. That’s why we have evolved our core offer to also provide business services and platforms, resulting in a better and more efficient business banking offer – and a better life for our small business clients and our staff.

By giving businesses access to what they need to grow – from working capital and payment systems to partnerships and networks – we can help them focus on what they do best, and also help foster stability and innovation.

I encourage my team to manage our business like we own it – giving us all empathy for the wide-ranging issues business owners face. We believe in opportunities, accountability and integrity – and these values form the backbone of our activities every day.

As a passionate advocate for diversity and inclusion (D&I), I have learned a great deal since starting Macquarie’s D&I journey a few years ago. I’m always willing to share the value that different thinking, different skills and different experiences can bring to teams.
