You’ll see Drue’s friendly face at our Murwillumbah branch right in the hub of town on Commercial Road. Having been in the industry for over 20 years, Drue is well versed in all things banking and financial services.
Coming to us from Bendigo Bank where he was area manager, he’s also a supportive leader and enjoys mentoring teams. His expertise has also led him overseas, spending five years in the Netherlands with German logistics company, DHL as well as onto owning a business himself, something he’s never forgotten and why he makes a point of regularly connecting with the business community – sharing stories and having a good chat. For Drew, the understanding and appreciation of what it means to own your own business is never lost.
Successful banks are built from successful communities and these communities are driven by the customers within them. I’m passionate about what I do and I like to see people grow.
Drue truly values being an active part of the community. Since joining the SCCU team, the relationship that has grown and developed with Murwillumbah Arts Trail has been a highlight for him. A flagship event for the town, the Arts Trail is dedicated to showcasing the talented artists in Tweed and locally created art. There’s no mistaking the community spirit that comes to the forefront throughout the three days with the entire town transforming and getting involved. Shops becoming the gallery and visitors are invited to follow the exhibition trail including established galleries, artists’ studios, shopfronts, cafes, theatres and historic halls. Events like these are something Drue and the whole Murbah team get behind, often volunteering time to support.
Drue describes himself as ‘not your average banking manager’ and his portfolio of experience is certainly a testament to that. Not to mention his love of classic cars! He’s lived and travelled around the world but has truly fallen in love with ‘Murbah and the life that ‘the best town in the world’ has offered him and his family. Drue’s personal values can be summed up simply – he is passionate about helping others – whether it be helping a customer realise their dreams, or helping the team unleash their potential.
