Born and bred in Launceston, Tasmania, Thomas completed an apprenticeship in horticulture (landscaping and garden design) before commencing his career in finance.
Prior to joining Achmea as a Farm Insurance Specialist, Thomas spent seven years working for Tasmanian-owned, MyState Bank.
In the last five years of the role, he was part of the agri-commerce lending team which gave him valuable experience within the Tasmanian agribusiness sector and an insight into the challenges facing local farmers.
When the opportunity arose to join Achmea, Thomas jumped at the chance to get out on-farm and establish meaningful connections with his clients.
Armed with extensive local knowledge, experience in finance and an easy-going personality, he is passionate about helping farmers continue doing what they do best, farming.
Outside of work, Thomas is heavily involved in community sports, particularly football, golf and basketball.
