I have been a client of CommBank since 1985 when I opened my Dollarmite account in Grade Prep. I run three business accounts, one credit card account and four separate savings accounts for my children at CommBank. The process of getting Business loans in the past (through other institutions) has been very regimented and lacked personalisation. My needs are as unique as I am. Dealing with Franchisee Relationship Manager, Grant Dawson was seamless, and the products he offered were tailored to my needs. He listened. No challenge was too great, and solutions were always found. The flexibility has given my business the best start for success. 

The experience has made me an advocate of the Franchise Business team at CommBank. I like having a banker that understands my needs and genuinely wants me to succeed.
