Excavator digging a hole

Robert Taplin

Relationship Manager

NSW, North Sydney

I have over 40 years experience in asset finance which was gained working for funders Citibank, Beneficial Finance, and AGC/Westpac. Working in partnership with brokers to arrange equipment finance for their clients has been a significant part of my career.

In 2019 I accepted an opportunity to join the Finlease team who were very well known to me. This has given me a fresh perspective on the equipment finance industry, and the opportunity to partner with a range of funders to meet our client’s needs.

My purpose at work is to make finance easy and hassle free for our clients. We get the finance arranged so that our clients can focus on their purpose at work.

We provide finance solutions to a number of market segments including the civil sector, aviation, rail, food, printing, health & fitness and technology. Our team specialises in financing such assets as Technology (hardware, software and services), fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft, locomotives, track equipment and wagons, printing presses, yellow goods such as excavators and alike, gym equipment and food processing machinery.

Away from work I enjoy trekking (I have been fortunate to get to both the summit at Mt Kilimanjaro, and Everest Base Camp), cycling, the beach, and sports generally, and spending time with my family including my wife, two children and their families. I have three grand children.
