Hayley Ogenis is a Finance Consultant here at Stratton Finance and has been in the automotive industry for 16 years. Get to know Hayley in this article.
Where you were born?
Manjimup, country south west WA.
Time with us at SF?
Roles you’ve held previously?
16 years in car dealerships, last 9 years of them in finance roles.
What you’re driving?
Nothing! After so many years of not needing to own a car due to driving dealership cars, I can’t seem to keep a car. I’ve bought and sold two since moving to Sydney (a GLA250 Mercedes and a Hyundai i30). I’ll buy another at some point I’m sure, if I see a good deal. My Dad’s a bit of a car wheeler and dealer too so it’s in the genes!
The hard hitting part
What is your role today and your objective?
My role is a Finance Consultant. I love knowing I’m putting my clients into the best possible option that’s available to them. I want to know that their car payment is never uncomfortable for them, and they’re getting into a car that suits their needs.
What are you most excited about for the future?
I’m excited about the future of finance. With more fintech businesses coming about, there’s an improved transparency for the client, and it’s going to keep getting better and better. Hidden bank fees and unhelpful customer service channels are becoming a thing of the past!
Most importantly, why do you love coming to work everyday?
I love the culture and the business model of Stratton Finance. We’re all so supported and valued, and encouraged to do our best. We have an amazing team, not only in our Sydney office, but the broader business!
