Wide Bay Australia Business Banking announces Exciting New Partnership with CCIQ
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland has teamed up with Wide Bay Australia Ltd to provide quality services to its business banking customers in regional Queensland.
CCIQ Regional manager Wide Bay Kimberley Lynch said the Chamber was pleased to be working closely with Wide Bay Australia to connect with the region’s business community.
“Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay businesses continue to list access to finance as one of their key issues, so we are thrilled to have Wide Bay Australia as our partner,” Ms Lynch said.
“One of the unique offerings will be Wide Bay Australia’s analysis being based on a business in an industry, rather than relying solely on computer models to determine lending criteria.
“Wide Bay Australia will be offering some great educational benefits to our members and we look forward to working with them to power Queensland’s business potential.”
Wide Bay Australia General Manager of Business Banking and Operations said the two organisations possessed similar values when it came to the business community.
“The direct alignment to the core geographical areas of our business provides us with a great opportunity to engage with CCIQ in a variety of mutually beneficial and meaningful ways in these markets”, Mr Rasmussen said.
“CCIQ have similar values to ours, in particular their ‘educational’ approach, and this agreement provides a range of benefits for our business banking customers.”
“It’s also an excellent avenue to promote our participation in local business networks and will give us useful insights into the Queensland business community, especially small-to-medium regional businesses.”
Wide Bay Australia’s Managing Director, Martin Barrett said he was also very excited about partnering with Queensland’s peak association for small and medium enterprises.
“CCIQ has been synonymous with business in Queensland for over 50 years, and while Wide Bay Australia has been providing banking and finance services to local people since 1966, this partnership gives us the opportunity to further position our commitment to meeting local business needs while also supporting Queensland business.”
