A special thanks to Bernie Fanning from the NAB, from John Kempton.
After 24 years as an employee of MJ Printing, I was given the opportunity to buy this Company.
It was Christmas 2013, and I had been messed around by the bank that I had been with since I was an Apprentice.
The Other Bank were too slow, difficult to deal with…very disappointing.
Then I rang Bernie Fanning at NAB. Instant results…Bernie got it moving immediately and introduced me to Trevor Wiseman.
Both these guys are real relationship men… Banks still need that…
Recently I invited both Bernie and Trevor out to our factory.
I presented them both with one of our new products a personalised note Pad box, but also wanted to give Bernie an additional box , after his retirement from the NAB.
Bernie started in the Charlton branch of the NAB in 1972.
Gough was about to become PM, Brockie won his first Bathurst, and St Kilda had won one Premiership (sorry Bernie, hopefully Saints will Win another Premiership one day).
Bernie had a great, enduring career with the NAB and thank you so much for your help.
