The Finance Professionals was founded in 1985 by Leigh Padbury as he had a passion for helping people achieve their financial goals. He quickly established a loyal client base who appreciated his ability to look outside of the square for their financing. He continued this until 2014, when his son Michael took over the business. Michael shares his passion for finding solutions for borrowers who have found themselves outside the traditional lending sphere.
Michael has over 15 years experience in the Financial Services industry. Since his graduation from Melbourne University in 2003 he spent time in Investment Banks both in Melbourne and London. Upon returning to Melbourne in 2009 he joined The Finance Professionals under his father, Leigh, an industry veteran. Since that time, he has gained significant exposure, and a passion, for the non conforming lending market. In 2014, upon Leigh’s retirement, he has taken over The Finance Professionals and continues the passion and service that has made The Finance Professionals famous since 1985.
