Meet The Propel Finance Team

Who We Are

History Of Our Group

Peter Catlin opened Propel Finance Group’s doors in 2010 driven by his desire to meet every client’s individual needs and engage with a broad scope of lenders.

As Peter spent his time talking with clients to completely understand their needs, Propel Finance Group saw several years of rapid growth and so Dan Prentice joined the group in 2013 to continue the delivery of personalised, no pressure service that Propel clients now expect.

2019 saw Peter step back from day to day operations and whilst we would never think to replace him, we were fortunate to secure the services of an experienced broker in Deon Kruger.  Deon has brought to the team a renewed energy and focus on client communications and service that is now synonymous with Propel Finance Group.

We have made other business changes mostly in the back office, which enable us to focus on and continue to deliver outstanding results for our clients whilst keeping current and compliant in a rapidly changing and challenging environment.

The mortgage broking industry has been under increasing scrutiny over the last few years but we are confident that our experience and ability to be versatile and adapt allows us to continue to serve our clients in the manner that they have become accustomed.
