Brooke joins Suncorp in Toowoomba
Brooke Clowes, Suncorp Commercial Manager
I have to say, since moving to Suncorp’s Toowoomba team in July I have been blown away by what’s on offer up here. Every week there seems to be a new business opening, the dining and coffee scene is equal to anything you would experience in any major capital city and there’s no traffic!
For me, the move to Toowoomba was an opportunity for change – to get out of the Brisbane office, and really engage with our customers. I began my career with Suncorp in a branch in 2010 while I was completing my degree, and later moved into the Commercial side of banking. With all of the changes and investment that is going on up here, it was really a no-brainer when our Regional Manager April Cavanagh approached me with the offer. There is so much opportunity in the region, and I want to make sure our customers are positioned to make the most of this.
Something that has been really refreshing for me since my move is the different ways in which my customers and other business contacts here want to interact. Toowoomba’s business community is extremely generous with its time – this has led to me having a greater understanding of the opportunities and challenges the region is facing which is invaluable.
I’m really excited to see what our team can help the Toowoomba community and our customers achieve over the next 12 months. And I have to say, I don’t miss the commute to Brisbane’s CBD.
