Brad’s drive on the career path

Brad Meekin grew up in Leeton NSW, population 6700, but found the prospects of a job with the town’s major employer unappealing.

“The rice mill was the main place to work,” he explains. “Not to be rude about that, but I always knew I wanted something else. I wanted a career path, not just a standard job.”

So in May 2011, Brad joined EBM as an Assistant Account Manager, attracted by the career opportunities the business offered.

His previous experience in real estate sales has come in handy when he sees clients in his current role as an Assistant Relationship Manager.

“I spend a lot of time speaking to real estate agents directly,” he says. “Having been in their shoes, I can understand where they are coming from.

“I love driving from client to client with a good song on the radio to pass the journey.”

That’s lucky — Brad clocks up 3000-4000km a week in the call of duty.

Brad assists Yolanda Webster, RentCover’s Executive Relationship Manager for Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

Coincidentally, it was Yolanda (the mother of a friend of his) who got Brad’s resume on to RentCover General Manager Sharon Fox-Slater’s desk in the first place.

Outside work, Brad likes to keep a “good lifestyle”, hitting the gym four or five nights a week and enjoying time with his girlfriend on the weekends.
