Suncorp Bank has announced the appointment of Brecken Curtis as Regional Manager for Western Queensland.
The announcement reinforced Suncorp Bank’s commitment to regional communities by providing a dedicated manager to support customers on the ground in Longreach, Charleville, Richmond and Emerald.
Since starting at Suncorp Bank in 2007, Brecken has held various management roles focused on servicing agribusiness customers, including his most recent position as acting Regional Manager for North Queensland.
Living with his wife and three children in Longreach, Brecken brings local knowledge and a passion for supporting sustainable agribusiness practices to the role.
Suncorp Bank Head of Business Customers, Troy Constance, said Brecken will lead the regional team of specialised bankers to support agribusinesses and producers throughout Western Queensland.
“We are pleased to appoint Brecken to the role of Regional Manager for Western Queensland. The new role will allow him to maintain strong connections with our customers and support them through the opportunities and challenges associated with seasonal conditions,” Mr Constance said.
“Brecken and his wife own and operate a cattle property near Longreach, which has given him a strong understanding for agribusiness and the challenges our local producers continue to face. Brecken’s passion for this important sector resonates with the Bank’s commitment for supporting Australia’s regional and rural communities.”
Suncorp Bank Regional Manager for Western Queensland, Brecken Curtis, said he was looking forward to meeting local customers when he assumes the role from Monday, 29 June.
“As we know, change is constant in the agriculture sector and there are many things out of our control. However, I am optimistic about the future of agriculture in regional Queensland and feel honoured to play a role in building the financial stability and economic growth of West Queensland and surrounding areas,” Mr Curtis said.
Brecken will be based at the Suncorp Bank Longreach Branch and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
