Chris Burke

Equipment Finance Broker

NSW, Somersby

I entered the finance industry in 2013 as a bank teller for the National Australia Bank. This role complimented my studies as I was in the final stages of completing a Finance and Economics Degree at Macquarie University. Fortunately I was able to perform well at the National Australia Bank and found myself moving roles and trying different departments. I spent 3 months in Melbourne working in Business Banking, Foreign Exchange and Interest Rate Risk management, before returning to Sydney in 2014 to find my sanctuary in Asset Finance.

I knew straight away this was my sweet spot and enjoyed specialising in the BIG equipment – Cranes, Transport, Mining, Aircraft and Marine. I worked specifically in the broker distribution channel allowing me to be exposed to a very wide range of customers big and small. This is of course where I came to know and understand Finlease. When the opportunity to join the Finlease team opened in 2018 the decision made itself and I haven’t looked back. I now work closely with Jeff Wilson and together we specialise in financing Cranes and construction equipment all across Australia

Outside the office I have a keen interest in Agriculture – my wife and I have a small 200 Acre Olive farm approximately 3 ½ hours South West of Sydney. We enjoy spending weekends away from the big city when we can. On top of this I enjoy all sports, music and keeping active.
