Our Head of Compliance, Mr Jack Elias, has been awarded the honour of NSW Young Credit Professional of the Year 2017. The program is the largest and most prestigious Youth Credit Award program in Australia. It recognises the achievements of the new generation of industry leaders, and provides opportunity for support and shared learning from other recognised young talent, as well as experienced Credit Practitioners who are interested in assisting young Credit Professionals to achieve their potential.
We are very proud of Jack’s achievements, both in and outside of the workplace. Inside the office Jack has been instrumental in reviving our business management system so that our overall approach is one of proactivity, operationalised innovation, and always in the true spirit of our family values.
Outside of the workplace Jack has also shown himself to be of exceptional standard. Having trekked in Nepal shortly before the devastating earthquakes in 2015, he and his partner made the decision to act. Together they created the ‘2 Pairs Project’, and employ local Nepalese jewellers to design and make handmade jewellery. 100% of profits from every item sold is donated to rebuild schools and education programs in Nepal.
“2 Pairs Project exists to provide children and communities with opportunities to create a brighter future and stop the cycle of poverty…Our jewellery extends beyond sentimental value and impacts the lives of Nepalese children by equipping them with the most powerful tool on earth: education.”
Well done Jack.
