Regional service

Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority’s Client Liaison Officers are now known as Regional Area Managers (RAMs). Today, with higher lending limits available to Queenslanders, QRIDA’s personal on-farm service across the state is now more important than ever.

Our RAMs are local to you and ready to discuss your business needs, their knowledge will ensure you obtain accurate information and support throughout your application process. QRIDA has a network of nine Regional Area Managers based throughout regional Queensland to provide up-to-date information on QRIDA’s programs to producers, small business operators, bankers, accountants and government agencies. Our Regional Area Managers are also available to meet on-farm to help producers with their queries and assist with their applications.

To further reach customers and stakeholders, our Regional Area Managers and head office staff attend a range of events, conferences and field days throughout Queensland. Visit our Events Calendar to see where a QRIDA representative will next be available to discuss your financial options with you.

Testimonials

“The application process did seem a little bit daunting at the beginning of the process, but all worth it! Meet your local Regional Area Manager - they’re a great help, and having the low interest loan can only benefit you at the end of the day.”

“QRIDA has been excellent to deal with and having a Regional Area Manager come on-farm to assess our situation, gave them a better perspective on what we are doing and what we are going through.”

“Sam Spina was a great help – he took the time to come out to the farm and helped me through the application step by step."

"Peter Crowley was great to deal with. He provided all the information I needed and it was helpful to have someone in the region I could meet with about my application.”
