Prior to joining LINK, my career has been by choice varied and challenging, starting in the world of finance with the NAB then AGC as a regional manager. Then in 1979 I purchased my first business which was a motor vehicle and tractor dealership in the Adelaide Hills.

Then I built a Ford dealership and purchased a second Ford dealership. At the same period in my career I entered into property development with properties throughout Australia, and also had a large open cut opal mine in Coober Pedy. After selling out I entered the Hospitality Business, as general manager for a large hotel motel group in the Northern Territory, as well as continuing in property development in Darwin. While in Darwin I established a commercial Mortgage Business and opened outlets in Darwin, Launceston, Melbourne and Perth. After retiring in 2006 I soon found retirement was not for me and purchased a motel in the Coonawarra district of SA and then returning to Launceston to refurbish our heritage Bed & Breakfast business.

I now offer very varied business and finance acumen to my clients in both the sale and the purchase of their new venture.
