Meet the Team.

Our team of ex-senior bankers, experienced brokers, credit experts and business professionals have not only earned their stripes in their fields, but share a unique set of values. At STAC, we believe in limitless potential and possibilities. In finding ways to open doors (that were otherwise shut). Removing barriers to big ideas. Empowering others to chase their dreams. Financial freedom and certainty. 

And most importantly, being an all-round good person. 

We work together, roll our sleeves up, and support each other to get the best outcomes for our clients (and you may even find us down at the local having a laugh on a Friday arvo, too).
