Sydney-headquartered, award-winning finance brokerage service My Finance Agent has acquired Bathurst finance brokerage service FrontRunner Finance Solutions as part of an expansion strategy that will allow My Finance Agent to scale its independent loan brokerage services across metropolitan and regional New South Wales.
My Finance Agent welcomes FrontRunner to the family
"I’m excited to welcome FrontRunner Finance Solutions into the My Finance Agent family," said Christopher Jonson, My Finance Agent managing director. "Laurie Parkes and his team have built an enviable reputation serving the Bathurst community over the last 25 years, which we are excited to keep growing.”
“As a family-owned business ourselves, buying another family-owned business made sense,” Christopher Jonson continued. “As soon as I met Laurie and his wife Beryl, I could see that we share the same ‘people first’ values and that we would make a great team.”
FrontRunner Finance Solutions founder Laurie Parkes said about the acquisition, “I love serving the Bathurst community and don’t plan to stop working any time soon, but I also realise that it’s time to start thinking about a gradual transition to retirement. I’m delighted that FrontRunner’s new owner, Chris, is a person of high ethical values, with more than 20 years of experience in the finance industry. He’s built an award-winning broker team around great customer service and expert product knowledge, which I’m looking forward to being part of."

Bathurst residents may expect to see some changes to the FrontRunner Finance Solutions website and office signage, but otherwise it’s business as usual, said the pair. FrontRunner Finance Solutions will remain in Bathurst and the existing staff of Laurie Parkes, Bec Seaman and Gloria Thompson will continue to serve new and existing clients. The deal does not affect any existing loans or loan applications.

“Welcoming Laurie, Bec and Gloria into our team has been amazing. They are great people and great at what they do,” said Christoper Jonson. “With our combined teams, it means we get to offer Bathurst clients a wider range of independent expert advice and personalised loan solutions. We can’t wait to get started.”
