Joining the team in 2016, Lynette McGuffie is our Atherton based RFC servicing that region and also the Gulf of Carpentaria region including monsoonal trough enquiries brought on by the devastating flooding in early 2019.
Lynette has over 15 years experience in the banking and finance industry and operating a family farming business. She has worked extensively with rural and provincially based clients in various locations.
Lynette holds a Bachelor of Business and Diploma of Financial Counselling (Rural). She has extensive experience in understanding and improving business financial performance and a passion for helping agricultural businesses and families achieve their financial and personal goals.
Operators will benefit from contacting Lynette to help identify ways to become self-reliant in business and to better manage change and adjustment.
Lynette can work with you to develop options and support you during the decision making process. Lynette will service the Atherton region and also right across the Gulf region, in conjunction with her RFC colleagues. No part of North Queensland goes without a dedicated RFC to travel to and meet with clients.
Client's information is treated in the strictest confidence and services are free and independent of financial institutions, welfare agencies and government.
RFCS can be a very useful tool to aid in all sorts of activities such as:
- Preparing budgets
- Identifying areas of risk in your business
- Preparing for a visit to a succession planner, or
- Completing action plans to receive grants or income assistance
- Help identify any advice and training needs you may require
RFCs are trained to give you a high standard of financial information, and will aim to meet any reasonable request for an appointment at a time and place of your choosing.
