Bronwyn Donnelly
Customer Service Manager
Hi, I’m Bronwyn, but you can call me Bron. Raised in regional NSW, I have called the beautiful Sunny Coast home for over a decade now.

I joined Orchard Financial Group in 2020 with almost 20 years of banking experience behind me, many of those years in business banking for one of the big 4 banks. After being frustrated by the limitations inherent in working for just one lender, I’m enjoying having a genuine range of options available for my clients; it’s nice to have more than one tool in the toolbox.
