Luke has worked continuously within the Finance industry since 1964 when he joined the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. His time with the CBA spanned a period of 30 years during which time he progressed through the Bank’s Supervisory ranks and on to Accountancy and Assistant Manager roles, culminating in his appointment as Manager at CBA’ Goodwood branch for nearly 4 years and then Senior Manager CBA’ Unley branch for 6 ½ years. Luke left the CBA on the 31st of January 1994.
As a result of requests from many of his existing clients for consulting support, Luke entered the fledgeling Finance Broking field and LKFS was established on 1 February 1994.
Theo joined LKFS in 1995 and has worked within the finance broking industry his entire career.
Still relatively young, Theo is considered to be a veteran of finance and his knowledge in business operations and funding strategies is well beyond his years. With significant exposure to many industries, including construction, agriculture, manufacturing and retail, there isn’t much that he hasn’t seen in his 21 years in finance.
Theo is a customer focused leader of the LKFS team with a natural ability for forging strong relationships. He doesn’t mind rolling up his sleeves and fighting on behalf of his client's financial well being and is protective of the high standard of service expected by our clients.
