New Starter Announcement: Charlotte Baker
Meet StockCo’s newest Agrifinance Manager, Charlotte Baker. Charlotte began her career studying Agribusiness and Animal Production Science at the University of Queensland (Gatton campus) where she gained a wealth of knowledge and insight into the Agricultural finance industry.
Not only does she possess a great deal of Agricultural knowledge, but she also brings with her an extensive background in the financial industry. She thoroughly enjoyed her most recent role as Assistant Manager in Business Banking at Westpac, however, found that the position at StockCo would satisfy both her financial passion as well as her agricultural wisdom.
From an early age, Charlotte spent most of her childhood living on a hobby farm in Brisbane’s northside and grew up working in various farmhand positions before she graduated university. She says it was her hands-on upbringing that sparked her love for animals, its people and the industry as a whole.
“It really is true. People from the bush are worlds away from people in the city, and those are the people I want to work with.”
Straight away, Charlotte knew she wanted to join the team at StockCo. She claims she knew straight away that the position of Agrifinance Manager aligned perfectly with her goal to help the Australian beef and sheep industries in the best way that she can.
“I am most excited about the chance to immerse myself in such an exciting industry and to meet new people from many different areas and backgrounds.”
From her time at UQ Gatton campus, Charlotte studied the science behind livestock like beef and sheep which ultimately provided her with a plethora of technical knowledge. In her new role, Charlotte plans to put this extensive knowledge into action.
“My main goal is to provide the most appropriate solution to my customer’s needs and to the best of my abilities.”
Based in Brisbane, Charlotte’s primary responsibility, as Agrifinance Manager, is to support her Queensland and Northern New South Wales customers, delivering strategic finance solutions to meet their needs.
Charlotte is optimistic about her future at StockCo and leaves this final piece of advice for her clients:
“If you’re one of the lucky ones to have received rain, take advantage of that extra carrying capacity, don’t let it go to waste!”
