Media Release: Green shoots continue on a blossoming partnership

Aaron Newman CEO

Queensland Country Bank and Queensland Garden Expo 2024

While Winter chills its way across South East Queensland, the only gloves Queensland Country Bank staff will be wearing, are the gardening kind, because once again they are all in as Presenting Sponsor of the Queensland Garden Expo 2024, held next month in Nambour.

“Proof that from little things big things really do grow, the Queensland Garden Expo is this year celebrating 40 years of sharing the love of gardening with local and visitors, and last year there were 38,000, making it the largest gardening event in the state!” said Aaron Newman, CEO, Queensland Country Bank.

“We are thrilled to partner with Nursery and Garden Industry Queensland as its exclusive Banking Partner and Presenting Partner for the second year, because just as gardens need constant care and attention, so to do major events like the Expo,” he said.

“As a member-owned bank with a distinct purpose of helping all Queenslanders live better lives through better finances, while giving back to the communities we operate in, it makes perfect sense to support this incredible event, one which shares so many grassroots values with us.”

Like the Expo, Queensland Country Bank is growing, and now have 28 branches statewide with real people in real bricks and mortar branches.

“The South East region is an important part of our business with a lending office and branches in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane city as well as Beaudesert, Virginia and Ipswich,” continued Aaron.

“Community support and partnerships like the Queensland Garden Expo are at the centre of our business, allowing us to give back to, and be an active part of, the communities we serve. Plus, our team are all amateur gardeners, from growing a few herbs in the kitchen to some who are fully-fledged green thumbs! Me, I love spending time in the garden, it’s a nice way to relax after a busy week.”

Marion Beazley, Event Manager of Queensland Garden Expo added, “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Queensland Country Bank back as our Presenting Partner Sponsor in 2024.

“Our values of environmental awareness and protection and our connection to community strongly align with those of Queensland Country Bank and we look forward to working with their team.”

So over July 4, 5, 6 and 7, remember to call in to the Queensland Country Bank marquee at the Queensland Garden Expo in July, say hi to the team, meet the mascot Crackles, perhaps listen to some of the talks, and have a chance to win fantastic prizes.

Visit Queensland Country Bank or better still, come in and see the team at branches across Queensland.
