Managing Director & Team Leader
Dougal started QuickLoans to help people who needed short term personal and cash loans but who struggled to get their bank to take them seriously. His goal was to serve the financial needs of people who usually pay their debts back on time but are often overlooked by the big banks. With his extensive experience in financial services and the credit industries, Dougal was just the man for the job. Dougal has a B.B.S degree from Massey University and is a Chartered Accountant.
Dougal is a registered Financial Adviser. Check out Dougal’s disclosure statement. Prior to starting QuickLoans Dougal worked in New Zealand, the US and Europe, as both Audit Manager and Management Consultant for KPMG and as Financial Controller for Auto Credit Trust in London. What Dougal enjoys most about his role at QuickLoans is meeting customers, learning their stories and helping them get what they need through great financial advice and monetary support.
Dougal lives in Christchurch with his wife and three children. In his spare time, Dougal is a man of action. He loves mountain biking, jet boating and shooting clay birds. He’s an accomplished skier and qualified ski patroller. He also enjoys a good book, going to the theatre and adding to his large collection of rubber insects and loud, eccentric shirts. Dougal’s burning desire is to learn to fly airplanes and he’s indulged his passion of high flying by skydiving and flying on Concorde.

Apply for a QuickLoans loan today and you’ll…
Once you submit your application, a friendly QuickLoans rep will contact you within 60 minutes (during business hours). They’ll let you know how much you can borrow, and at what rate. Once you’re happy with the details you’ll get the funds within 24-hours – and often much sooner.
Why pay more than you have to? Our rates are some of the most competitive in New Zealand and will save you hundreds (or thousands) over the long run.
We understand everybody misses a bill from time to time and we won’t hold it against you. If you can afford your loan repayments and have something that we can secure your loan against we’ll do our best to help.
Call us today and you’ll talk to a NZ local in our South Island office, not a foreign call-centre or some computerised hotline. We listen, take time to understand your situation, and work with you to find an outcome that suits your budget and cashflow.
No deposit? No problem. Getting a flexible loan with zero deposit is easier than you think. We simply need to secure your loan against some collateral (property, car, etc…). Just ask us how.

Brian needed $700 for urgent car repairs
Brian’s car broke down in the car park at the local supermarket. With steam bellowing everywhere, it was obvious that the engine had overheated and needed urgent repair. Brian saw an advertisement for QuickLoans in the newspaper and called us. As Brian worked full-time as the operations manager for a paper company, he was unable to sign the legal documents during work hours. So, we went to him after hours and signed him up right there and then. We also gave him the money straight away.Read their full story
