Penny McGregor is finance specialist in both residential and commercial lending with over 15 years of experience working with medical clients. As one of the co-founders and directors of Kooyong Group (now known as Avant Financial Services), Penny is part of the leadership team that is driving our person-focused, values-based culture.

At Investec and BOQ Specialist, Penny helped to pioneer lending programs for salaried doctors working in the public hospital system. She has enjoyed assisting doctors at the start of their career and provide solutions along the way to then grow their private practice – with relationships spanning more than 10 years.

Before moving into finance in 2002, Penny worked as a primary school teacher. At Avant Financial Services, Penny uses those teaching skills to mentor our Relationship Associates. She was mentored herself by fellow Director Dianne Stewart and understands the importance of empowering staff so they can learn and grow.

Penny and her husband love renovating. She has experienced firsthand the same challenges her clients may face when they buy, build and renovate property. She also has a 3-year-old son, who keeps her in check and reminds her to enjoy the smaller things in life.
