After graduating year 12, Dan began his banking and finance career at Westpac Banking Corporation in Brisbane in 1988. He worked for the bank for seven years, excelling in his career and working his way up to management. While working for Westpac, Dan also began his Bachelor’s in Business, with a major in Banking and Finance.
After leaving Westpac, he began his ten year role with Avco Finance and Insurance (now known as Latitude Financial Services). Dan held a few positions within the company, including branch manager of several finance branches, and area manager of the retail/interest-free division. During this employment, Dan completed his Bachelor of Business.
At this point, Dan wanted to expand his finance experience and personal and professional achievements. To help broaden his horizons, he accepted a role as a finance broker with Capitalcorp Finance and Leasing in 2005.
In 2006, Fox Finance Group was introduced to the finance industry. Fox Finance Group wholly owns the businesses Fox Car Loans, Fox Business Loans, Fox Home Loans, and Fox Wealth Solutions. In 2008 when the GFC (Global Financial Crisis) impacted the finance world, all lenders tightened their approval criteria, and many of Fox Finance Group’s customers were missing out on car loans. Dan seized on this opportunity and formed Last Chance Car Finance Pty Ltd. This business is dedicated to helping people buy cars even when their circumstances are outside the criteria for a normal bank car loan.
Dan and his family have been living on the Sunshine Coast for the past decade. The Sunshine Coast is where Dan grew up as a child. In fact, Caloundra is where his father’s family business, Fox & Fox Solicitors (now known as Fox Mildwaters Solicitors), was based, and is still in the main street of Caloundra today. Dan has three boys he loves spending time with, Kadan, Jaxon and Kobi. Dan’s hobbies include property investing and riding jet skis. Dan has an extensive history racing jet skis. He has countless regional and state titles as well as three Australian titles, and in 2010 competed in the world jet ski titles in Lake Havasu, Arizona, USA where he finished 8th in the world in his class.
