‘Its been tough out here in recent years and it will be a long-haul for people to recover from the extended drought. People need to be realistic, to plan and that is where we can help. Its been hard for the region and the flow on effects are being felt by everyone – it’s not just farming families coming through our doors now.’

A background in farming, banking and small business provide a very strong foundation for Darren’s role as Counsellor for the Hay region.

A long career in banking, including roles as agribusiness manager, servicing customers all over New South Wales and Victoria, gives Darren invaluable expertise and knowledge. Using this skill set , Darren has been assisting farmers to assess their financial situation and to use this information to determine the options that will allow them to move forward.

For much of his banking career, Darren was based in Hay and as the owner of a local business he is part of the community. Darren has an extensive network of contacts in the rural, business and financial sectors throughout
the Riverina.
