Eoin joined Designer Financial Services in 2018 and it didn’t take him long to make his mark taking out Asset finance broker of the year at Plan Australia in 2020. Eoin’s drive to get the best possible outcome for a client sets him apart from the rest. Often going to battle with Lenders where others wouldn’t dare. There’s no other person I would want in my corner. Eoin has a real passion for being passionate. I have no doubt he will win a triathlon one day just to prove he can. The only question is will he be representing Ireland or Australia?
