Some of the faces and names behind our business team.

Introducing Andrew Bartlett

Business Relationship Manager for Newcastle and Hunter Valley region.

As a Relationship Manager for the past 22 years, what I enjoy the most is assisting my customers to grow their business and succeed in their chosen industry. We can provide solutions for everyday banking and also offer loan products as required.

I’ve worked for Newcastle Permanent for 38 years and am extremely experienced in all areas of banking. This includes all of the various entities that can be required for your business and offer solutions to meet those requirements.

Outside of work, I am married with 3 adult children who are all working in their own chosen profession. I’m a mad golf fanatic, playing every week an ex-rugby player who enjoys watching the rugby and surfing as hobbies.

If you’re looking for relationship banking, or help you with your enquiry, please contact me directly on 0402 202 777.

I’ve worked for Newcastle Permanent for a total of 27 years and am extremely experienced in all areas of banking. This includes all of the various entities that can be required for your business and offer solutions to meet those requirements.

Introducing Natilie Hickson 

Business Relationship Manager for the North West and North Coast regions.

As I move towards 17 years in finance, it has been quite the journey. My career has taken me to Port Macquarie, Newcastle, Perth, Townsville, Darwin and landed home again in Newcastle.

It has been a privilege to have been with Newcastle Permanent for almost 5 years looking after the home and investment lending needs of our customers. For the last 2 years I have been recognised in our Excellence Awards for my commitment to Outstanding Customer Service. I have always prided myself on making the complicated simple.

When I’m not wearing the black and purple uniform, I’m with my partner and children and our two Chihuahuas.I love going to the gym 6 days a week, listening to a good crime podcast, and wasting hours watching a series on Netflix, Stan or Disney.

If you’re looking for reliable person to support you with your banking, or help you with your enquiry, please contact me directly on 0427 244 450.
