Gary is our Loan Writer and Admin Manager.
Gary started in Banking with Westpac in 2006 working his way up to Relationship Manager within the Premium section of the bank which focused on building relationships with the banks high net worth clients.
Gary joined our team in 2015 as an Administration Manager. He wanted to take a break from lending for a few years while his children were young and this was a perfect way to develop new skills; to stay in the industry, and to have the desired work/life balance.
In 2018, Gary started moving back into the Loan Writing role. He will continue to oversee the admin team as he builds up his own client base before returning to full-time loan writing in the future. We are excited to support his journey.
Gary's admin role is to make sure the process to complete your application goes smoothly and from submission through to settlement.
As a loan writer, Gary brings his passion and years of industry experience - rather than having one lender's option he is thriving with the huge choice that a broker can access.
Gary says, "I love the fact that, in the broker space, I have far more choices and solutions for clients than just one bank's products and policy. I can solve more problems and deliver better outcomes to more people than I ever could at the branch."
Contact Gary during office hours on (07) 3463 0500 or on his mobile 0406 969 932.

After several years working as a General Manager for a large transport and logistics company he decided to rejoin Stuart's growing Mortgage Choice team.
He has now been back in the business for over a year now.
