At Business Fuel, our dedicated team of Lending Managers take the time to listen and tailor funding to meet your business needs and goals. So, we thought we’d introduce you to a few of them. First up, we’ve got Ben Brooks, one of our senior Lending Managers with over 10 years’ experience helping businesses like yours get the capital they need to thrive.

Thanks for your time today Ben.
No worries, happy to be here.

Great, let’s get stuck into it. So, how long have you worked at Business Fuel and what’s your favourite thing about your role?
I’ve been here for about 3 years and in that time, it’s been a pleasure experiencing the growth of our team. But I must say, my favourite thing about being a business loan provider with Business Fuel is the flexibility is gives me.

How so?
I love to travel. In fact, I travel so much that one of the most valuable items I have is my own personal luggage scales. I hate getting stung at the airport with oversized luggage, so I always make sure I’m good to go before I leave the house.

Sound advice! So, what’s your favourite destination?
Viva Las Vegas! But I’ve got to say, heading back to Thailand is definitely on my bucket list.

What else is on the list?
Skydiving…and…actually that’s it.

Any guilty pleasures?
Yes…cream filled sponge is my absolute weakness. And hot chips. (But everyone loves hot chips, right?)

Any nicknames as a kid?
Brooksy.

Makes sense. What are you watching on Netflix, and would you recommend?
Banshee. Absolutely – it’s awesome! Probably the most underrated show out.

Ok Ben, here’s a curly one for you – If you could drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Easy. Pure Blonde.

And finally, what’s one the best piece of advice you’ve received that you can share with our readers?
Work hard. Play harder.
