Some interesting things on our team…
Rick is passionate about his hometown of Cairns and our clients in North Queensland. He follows the Northern Pride and bleeds Red & Green for the South Sydney Rabbitohs. On the weekends he plays golf, his handicap is trying to find his ball after he hits it…
Stacey had worked in our Brisbane office for many years when we sent her to Cairns to help out for a stint. Well, she fell completely in love with the area and the people and never wanted to leave, so, she didn’t. She loves to indulge in the serenity of the rainforest and tries to play tourist closer to home on the weekend but says there is still so much she hasn’t seen yet.
Andrea moved to FNQ last year from the NT and loves the new lifestyle and opportunities FNQ has for her young family. Despite having a couple of young children she loves coming into work and helping clients and working in the insurance industry. Andrea found quickly that it was a true passion so she zoomed through her studies and now looks after our domestic clients. Coming from the NT, Andrea is still working on who to follow in Rugby League – QLD or NSW and it is a contentious work in progress.
David is passionate about his family, just like his work and coffee. He may not have all the answers but he will be truthful about it and is willing to help where he can. Being an Ipswich Grammar boy he follows the mighty Qld Reds and Maroons and also Brisbane Broncos. In his downtime, he enjoys hunting and fishing in the Far North Qld.
Tegan was raised in North Queensland and comes from a large family.. being the 8th and youngest sibling, she’s often referred to as the ‘Golden Child’ in her family. She is a proud fur mum of a 4-year-old Staffy named “Bubbles”, who pays a visit to the Cairns office from time to time. Tegan is only new to our team, being with Rivers for 3 months now, however, she’s been in the insurance industry for 5 years, working alongside Senior Commercial Brokers.
