Goodbye to our Financial Counsellor – Marshall Scott

2018-01-23T13:41:39+00:00

We bid a fond farewell to a much respected team member, Marshall Scott recently resigning from RFCSV-G.

Marshall has been a Financial Counsellor since 2002, assisting well over 600 farmers throughout his career, often helping navigate through serious disasters and crises.

Marshall was often the face of RFCSV-G as a spokesman representing the assistance we provide our farming communities.  As well as years of practical farming experience, and being our in-house fisheries expert, he holds numerous qualifications in Agribusiness, Horticulture, Agriculture, Accounting and Financial Counselling.

Clients often commented on Marshall’s approach to counselling, particularly of his great empathy, understanding, and immense knowledge.

Marshall will be greatly missed by our team and clients alike.  We thank him for his enormous contribution over 15 years and wish him a wonderful future
