Last month, Jenny Sells joined the PPT Capital as our Lending Manager. Originally from Geelong, Jenny has lived in Ballarat for many years and is well known in the community after spending many years in the banking and finance industry with Westpac.
What made you choose the finance industry?
I chose the finance industry as I enjoy assisting people towards achieving their financial goals and saw plenty of potential for career progression. The decision to work in the finance industry is far different to what I always dreamt of which was to become a Police Woman. I am now glad I didn’t choose that path.
What experience do you have in the industry?
I began working with Westpac in September 1992. I have had various roles including Ledger Examiner, Teller, General Hand, Branch Manager and more recently Home Finance Manager for the past 15 years.
Do you have any particular areas of interest/specialty?
My main interest in my role is assisting people achieve their goals of owning their own property, and offering advice on how they can expand on investing in the property market. I also take their overall financial needs seriously, offering referrals to other specialists for protection of their assets and lifestyle, as well as reviewing their superannuation and retirement needs. Over the past 15 years I have enjoyed watching my clients move through different stages of their lives and achieve their financial goals.
What keeps you busy away from work?
My kids keep me very busy as they are all actively involved in netball and basketball. I am also very keen on running and love sport in general.
Do you have any children?
I have 3 daughters, aged 16, 13 & 8.
