Meet the Team

Our offices are in Brisbane, Goondiwindi, Toowoomba and Proserpine but our clients come from all across Australia. With a combined experience of more than 80 years, our staff and consultants tend to listen more than talk. After all, we’ve known long ago that understanding what a client really needs is the first step in building a solution that really works.

Tim Gibbons

Managing Director, Goondiwindi

Tim serves as AgLend’s managing director. With a background that spans a broad spectrum of business and finance, he leads the company’s daily operations and demands first-class treatment for every client.

After earning diplomas and certifications in financial planning and business management, Tim launched a sterling career that includes short stints in banking and a management consultancy firm in London. In 2001, Tim blazed his own trail as an entrepreneur and established a company that specialised in real estate investment and private capital lending. His ridiculously unflappable will and keen understanding of business strategy eventually transitioned that company from its humble beginnings in Goondiwindi into a national hub for rural loans and agricultural finance.

Tim puts a high premium on relationships, places trust and ethical practices at the core of everything, and hinges AgLend’s success on the success of its customers. Like many of his clients, he enjoys country living, especially when visiting his family farm in the fertile landscape of the Darling Downs

Marieta Hopkins

Finance Manager, Goondiwindi

Marieta’s family owns several farms near Goondiwindi. That background certainly helps her build genuine rapport and deep empathy with rural loan borrowers. But it is her superior expertise in financial analysis and credit management that makes her especially valuable to AgLend and its customers.

Expect Marieta to hear your story, craft sustainable business models that align well with your dreams, and find the perfect credit facility to make it all happen. As our in-house credit assessment manager, Marieta’s primary role is to evaluate your application, judge its merits, and identify weak points. She’ll come up with a better alternative whenever necessary and surprise you why no one ever thought of structuring your application that way before.

We’re with you. We’ve long known about Marieta’s keen financial insight, given her banking experience of around 40 years that included responsibilities as a commercial credit manager. Nonetheless, Marieta still manages to surprise us every now and then.

Justin Sheridan

Finance Consultant, Griffith/Wagga Wagga

Hailing from the “City of Good Sports,” Justin brings a full complement of expertise to help you build a winning game plan for your financial goals. Justin is an accomplished finance broker, relationship banking manager, and business analyst — with some background in accounting. By all indications, he’s a full-stack finance advisor, in our opinion. And at AgLend, Justin especially shines as our primary agribusiness consultant when it comes to vineyards, wineries, and table grapes. He’s also our point person in lifestyle property and commercial lending in the Wagga Wagga/Griffith district. The latter covers equipment finance, property development, and transport operations. So whether you need farm or business loans and even if you have a unique financing problem, Justin will certainly get the ball rolling.

Why choose Aglend?

Between our experience in the industry, technology and process built from being the market leader, we take the hassle out of getting a loan. We help by managing your application from start to finish and keeping you up-to-date throughout the process. At Aglend, we stick around after you’ve settled to support you throughout the life of your loan. Additionally, our Aglend health check is where one of our specialists scans the market on your behalf and periodically checks in to ensure you’re always on the best rates.
