The majority of Scott’s working career has been in Banking and Finance, prior to him joining KHBEC in August 2008. So, giving business guidance and support to existing business owners and those people contemplating starting a business is something Scott is well versed in.
Having owned two prior businesses – one a start-up, the other being a purchase of a going concern has given Scott greater understanding and empathy with small business owners.
“As a Business Development Manager for one of Australia’s largest banks I felt I had a good understanding of small business – which I did. But when you’re running your own show, paying wages, rent and other bills – the full comprehension of ensuring sales are made to meet these costs lifts your understanding of being in the zone more than you could have ever appreciated before”. Working with fellow Tasmanians on their business is very gratifying”.
Office Manager/Business Advisor
Prior to joining KHBEC, the majority of Kerry’s career has been working in the Banking and Finance industry with a large part of that time dedicated to working with small to medium sized businesses. Working as a Lending Manager, Business Development Manager and Relationship Executive gave him the opportunity to work with a wide variety of businesses to assist them in their growth.
Wanting a break away from the industry he decided to buy a small café and gift shop, so had to learn the intricacies of running his own business. In addition to the above, Kerry also has worked in event management and marketing which are essential to the success of a business.
“I have a passion for working with the local community and obtain great pleasure in seeing people achieve their dreams. It gives me great satisfaction when I am able to assist someone in the achievement of their dream.”
