Queensland Country Bank has opened a specialist lending office in Maroochydore in response to the high growth in the Sunshine Coast region, appointing Tristan Scott to the role as Retail Business Development Manager.

With over 25 years’ banking experience, Tristan is well positioned to help Sunshine Coast based Members with their residential and commercial lending requirements.

Chief Executive Officer Aaron Newman says their presence in Maroochydore is a significant milestone in their continued expansion into the Sunshine Coast.

“The Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s fastest developing economies, growing each year above national averages, with significant residential and commercial developments underway,” Mr Newman says.

“Queensland Country Bank is a member-owned organisation with a fifty year history of helping regional Queenslanders achieve their financial goals, and having a mobile lender on the ground in Maroochydore will enable us to better service existing and new Members and brokers.

“Tristan is a highly credentialed banking professional and as a long-time local, he has a genuine understanding of the Sunshine Coast and the wider community through his involvement in grassroots junior sport and the golfing community.

“It’s all part of our difference as a member-owned bank to offer genuine face to face customer service and to support the communities in which we operate.”

The Queensland Country Bank Specialist Lending Office is located at 115 – 117 Aerodrome Road, Maroochydore, and is available by appointment only, with a fully serviced branch with bank and health fund services located at 28 Maple Street, Maleny.
