Meet the Platform Finance Team
You’ve probably noticed things are looking a little different around here. Thanks to a company rebrand in November 2018, we’ve got a fabulous new website, a new company name and a new Executive Leadership Team ready to lead us through the exciting days ahead.
The most obvious change is to our company name. But that’s literally all that’s changed – rather than being known as Platform Consolidated Group (or ‘PCG’), we’re now known as ‘Platform Finance’.
We’re still offering the same range of asset finance services and the way we operate hasn’t changed. Long story short, we’re still Australia’s leading asset finance services partner. You can still rely on us for finance aggregation and processing support designed to help grow and strengthen your business well into the future.
As well as enabling stronger partner relationships, we believe that operating under one cohesive brand will also give us greater negotiating power with lenders. This in turn will mean more competitive rates for our community of brokers, and better product choices from our 30+ lender panel for their existing and potential clients.
To ensure we remain positioned at the forefront of the market, we’ve also made some changes to our leadership team.
Taking the reigns as Chief Executive Officer is Brad Crinion. With 16 years’ commercial finance experience in Australia and internationally, he was our Financial Controller before being promoted to CEO in June 2018.
Before joining us at Platform Finance, he was a Commercial Manager for one of Australia’s largest listed agricultural businesses. As part of that role, he sat on the board of nine successful joint ventures across Australia, as well as managing the financial and commercial aspects of over 20 businesses within that group.
He’s supported in his role by Damian Mantini as Director of Aggregation and Strategic Partnerships, and Richard Kew as National Sales Director.
Damian and Richard are shareholders in the business and are perfectly positioned to help build and support our community of brokers and aggregators.
Former CEO Mike Nicholls is our new Chairman of the Board, while Mike Nicholls and Peter Schroeder are our new Executive Directors and are also shareholders. Chris Penney and Caroline Grima have stepped into the respective roles of Chief Operations Officer and Group General Manager.
The entire team is looking forward to working with you and celebrating our shared success.
