Bob Dodd joins the team

We are excited to announce Bob Dodd will be joining our team as Commercial Director, commencing 1 July 2021.

In this newly created leadership role within our combined company, Bob will be responsible for driving key partnerships and will collaborate on strategic plan development and execution.

Bob brings with him over 20 years of experience in the Australian premium funding industry and has been responsible for five mergers and acquisitions during this time. Most recently, Bob was Head of Premium Funding at BOQ Finance. He has also held top-level executive roles with Centrepoint Alliance and GE Capital.

“We’re excited to have Bob on board,” said Daniel Gronert, CEO of the Premium Funding / Principal Finance Group Company. “Bob is highly qualified and has extensive commercial and compliance industry experience. His proven track record of successfully bringing two premium funding companies together will prove valuable to our business”.

Premium Funding Pty Ltd and Principal Finance Pty Ltd announced our merger under a new ownership arrangement in January 2021. Our combined company is now Australia’s largest independent funder, with plans to grow further.

“I’m looking forward to being a part of this newly merged team, focused on delivering high quality funding solutions to help our broker partners and their clients grow,” said Bob. “I’m really pleased to be joining at such an exciting time for the business”.
