Commercial Finance Broker
Kathryn Bordonaro has over 25 years experience in commercial finance, and has been a commercial finance broker for over 17 years. More importantly Kathryn is the 8th generation of her family to be a self employed business owner, and it is this passion for small business that has led her to advocate CAFBA (Commercial Asset Finance Brokers Association of Australia) and has served on the board of this organisation for over 10 years.
She is the first woman to hold an executive position on this board. In addition to this role, Kathryn is a member of the Victorian State Government Small Business Minister’s Advisory Council, and uses this forum to raise issues that impact on small business, particularly with regard to access to finance. In 2014, Kathryn was named as the Small Business Champion of Australia by COSBOA (Council of Small Business Organisations of Australia) – this award was given to represent the many hours of volunteer work that Kathryn has provided on behalf of the small business community, in particular, her constant lobbying for improved access to finance for small business.
Kathryn has walked the corridors of parliament house in Canberra many times over and has contributed to shaping legislation, and is currently consulting with the new federal Small Business Ombudsman in their Inquiry into Small Business Lending. Regularly quoted in the media, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age newspaper in March 2016 named Kathryn as one of the nine most influential female entrepreneurs in Australia – and in this article she named her clients as being her biggest source of inspiration in every challenge she takes on.
When not busy chasing down the best deals for her customers, Kathryn can be found working in her garden – which she hopes one day will be worthy to be part of the Garden Open day scheme. A life member of CAFBA and holder of Diploma in Finance and Mortgage Broking Management, Kathryn is married to Paul, and proud mum of Taylah and Matthew.
Commercial Finance Broker
Nick commenced his career as a Commercial Finance Broker in 2002, is a founding member of Allbiz Finance Brokers and takes great pride in the success stories that he has contributed to when his clients grow their businesses.
Nick is known in the industry for his “never give up” approach in securing finance approvals and great interest rates for his customers. A commitment to his client base has seen Nick build strong knowledge in the transport, construction, earthmoving and food service industries – and he is always looking to learn more about the diverse businesses that seek him out. Taking great pride in delivering exceptional customer service sees Nick very rarely working “normal” hours – he drives a ridiculous amount of kilometres every week to deal with his clients face to face, and is always willing to bring your paperwork early in the morning, late in the evening, or on the weekend – whatever works for his customers – is how Nick works.
Nick is a member of CAFBA and holds a Diploma in Finance and Mortgage Broking Management. Nick is married to Kate, and his two young daughters, Isabella and Ava, keep him very busy. Known as an average footballer, he still plays basketball several times a week and enjoys coaching and mentoring younger players.

Clients, and accountants alike, all enjoy her commitment to making complex transactions appear easy – we are certain she has a magic wand in her desk that cuts through paperwork and problems.
Calling a client and telling them they are approved for their finance is a constant buzz for Tanya, and she very much enjoys the strong and ongoing client relationships she has built up. A driving force in the Allbiz Finance Brokers team, Tanya has dedicated much time and effort in developing our custom built software to provide easy, fast access to client information – thus allowing a speedy and superior customer service outcome. Tanya is an associate member of CAFBA and holds a Diploma in Finance and Mortgage Broking Management. A busy working Mum to Emma, and married to Dean, Tanya enjoys spending time with her family, gardening and exploring the food and wine destinations throughout Australia. Tanya and Dean have recently added a bee hive to their garden – which is proving to be an “interesting” experience.
In 2016 Tanya was announced as a recipient of the CAFBA Women In Leadership Scholarship program and is enjoying undertaking additional studies so she can offer further expertise to her valued clients.
