Jeff Wilson

Senior Partner Equipment Finance

NSW, Smeaton Grange

As you would know by both my name and the photo attached that I am Jeff Wilson. The information you don’t know about me is that I am a partner within the Finlease business, and joined the business way back in 1995. I specialize in construction equipment finance, traditional financing assets such as cranes (mobile, pick and carry, tower, rough terrain, city glass all types), access equipment and general construction equipment. I am currently the Chair of the NSW Crane Industry Council of Australia (CICA) and also actively participant within the CICA association at a national level.

I have continued to work to build long term relationships with my customers, this has seen me provide brokering services with certain customers for 20 plus years, some of these businesses have been since there inception. My approach is simply to try and build a long term relationship that works for both parties, in my believe this is achieved by trying to look at things from a customer’s perspective. I try to delivery finance approvals that both suit the customers equipment needs and more importantly the customers cash flow needs. This will also often see me talking with both the customer and their external accountant to confirm the finance method is also delivering the most tax effective purchase method.

I tend to look at the service that I provide as being that off a one stop bank manager, but not restricted to just the one bank but instead having access to a wide variety of banks and finance companies. This will allow us to “shop around” for what is the best all round deal for you the customer. More importantly I am someone who genuinely knows and understands equipment finance, should the equipment be purchased off shore and requires specific currency/ payment terms (foreign currency hedging, letters of credit), then I certainly understand how to navigate through this process. Alternatively if the equipment is purchased local via either a dealer or private sale then again this can easily be completed.

When I am not working I am either at home on the farm enjoying the rural life or being a “petrol head” trying to find some time to tinker with a couple of old “classic cars”.
