Managing Director & Team Leader
Dougal started Loans 2 Go to help people who needed short term personal and cash loans but who struggled to get their bank to take them seriously. His goal was to serve the financial needs of people who usually pay their debts back on time but are often overlooked by the big banks. With his extensive experience in financial services and the credit industries, Dougal was just the man for the job.
Dougal has a B.B.S degree from Massey University and is a Chartered Accountant. Dougal is a registered Financial Adviser. Check out Dougal's disclosure statement. Prior to starting Loans 2 Go Dougal worked in New Zealand, the US and Europe, as both Audit Manager and Management Consultant for KPMG and as Financial Controller for Auto Credit Trust in London.
What Dougal enjoys most about his role at Loans 2 Go is meeting customers, learning their stories and helping them get what they need through great financial advice and monetary support.
