AFG awards top brokers and digs deep for charity

AFG’s fourth annual Commercial and Equipment Finance Conference recognised its top commercial and equipment finance brokers, and also raised money for a worthy cause.

The two-day conference, which was held last week in Melbourne, aimed to equip brokers with invaluable insights, tools and the right networks to increase their business performance, according to Mark Hewitt, AFG’s general manager of sales and operations.

Mr Hewitt said the conference also featured an inspirational keynote address from Western Bulldogs list manager Jason McCartney, who suffered horrific burns from being caught up in the 2002 Bali bombings.

“With his personal experiences of the horror of burns, Jason now works alongside the K.I.D.S Foundation, a not-for-profit charity that supports children who have endured trauma, burns and other life-changing injuries,” he said.

Mr Hewitt said Mr McCartney’s appearance inspired AFG and conference attendees to raise $11,715 for the foundation.

AFG also launched its inaugural Commercial and Equipment Finance Member Awards at the conference.

Daniel Zadnik of Hawthorn Finance was named Commercial Loan Writer of the Year, while AFG’s Commercial Rookie of the Year award went to Larry Zhou of Link Capital Finance.

Business 500 claimed the Commercial Broker Group of the Year trophy, and Angelo Pillai of Asset Finance Systems was named AFG’s Asset Finance Writer of the Year.
