Rabobank presence extends to Hobart

The world’s leading food and agribusiness bank, Rabobank, has opened a new office in

Hobart. The serviced office is located in the Hobart Corporate Centre, Level 3, 85 Macquarie

Street, Hobart. 

State Manager Victoria and Tasmania, Mark Bennett says that the establishment of the

Hobart branch strengthens the bank’s presence in Southern Tasmania and brings the bank

closer to its clients in this region. 

“Rabobank’s commitment to farmers in Tasmania has seen the bank steadily grow its

customer numbers, especially in the last four years.  Our investment in Hobart will better allow

us to service client needs and is a statement of confidence in the long term future of farming

across a number of key industries," Mr Bennett said.

The bank’s primary interest still lies in providing the best service, value and expertise to its

clients and in establishing mutually beneficial relationships with its customers and the

communities in which it operates, Mr Bennett added. 

“Establishing a physical presence in Hobart will enable us to service our clients at a local level

from within the community," he said, adding that branch manager Daniel Tribolet would

provide a great balance of local knowledge and banking experience to lead the business from

the newly established premises in Hobart.

From a farming background in Hobart, Mr Tribolet said that significant growth within the state

has necessitated the expansion in the form of a Hobart office, in addition to the main

Rabobank office based in Launceston which services the state.


“The culture at Rabobank is truly unique and is very much based on the premise that you

need to spend time with individual clients in order to get to know the intricacies of their

businesses and the specific challenges they face,” Mr Tribolet said, adding that the bank’s

presence in Hobart would foster this culture.

You can contact the branch on (03) 6270 2230 or call your local Rabobank branch on 1300
