James Bretnall Senior Broker Equipment Finance Finlease

James Bretnall


Blackburn, VIC

I am not an ex-banker with 15 years’ experience in commercial banking or an accounting major, I am just a one time butcher and civil engineering surveyor who has a passion to help and grow SME business across Victoria by providing a full turnkey commercial finance solution. My passion is derived from providing the best solutions and experience for my client’s needs. I am lucky enough to work in an industry that I love surround by people who I admire so If its digs dirt, moves dirt, transports heavy equipment or harvests timber then best we sit down and have a chat…. At a time and location that suits you the client.

Whether it’s a sea-level or 1,900 metre high in the great dividing ranges in the Victoria alpine region where you may find me flying down strapped into my prized snowboard, I am always available to help and provide the best service in equipment finance.

In the spare time I do get I am usually found on a football pitch somewhere in Victoria trying my upmost best not to concede another goal and to hopefully keep a clean sheet at least twice in a season while telling everyone I am a goalkeeper with the nickname “magnet hands”

Also in the winter months I head up the Finlease Mt Hotham office between June and September high in the Great Dividing Range where I spend my time arranging equipment finance on a chairlift heading up snake gully run on another blue bird day.
