Anthony Lin
ANTHONY LIN - President

My journey in the finance industry spans over a decade, with seven years dedicated to banking where I developed my expertise in financial management and strategic decision-making.

Four years ago, I started on a new adventure by establishing a thriving mortgage brokering business.

This experience has not only solidified my expertise in financial services but has also given me invaluable insights into entrepreneurship and business management.

Networking isn’t just a professional endeavour for me; it’s a personal joy. I thrive on the opportunity to connect with individuals from diverse backgrounds, industries, and experiences.

Building meaningful relationships and creating synergies among professionals is what drives me every day.

In addition to this role, I proudly representing CPBA and serve as the Treasurer of the Federation of Chinese Associations (VIC) Inc., contributing to the broader Chinese community’s welfare and growth initiatives.

Furthermore, I hold the position of Vice President at the Melbourne World Friendship of Fuqing, where I actively promote cultural exchange and understanding.

I believe that genuine connections are the cornerstone of success, and I am committed to creating platforms and opportunities that facilitate collaboration, learning, and growth for our members.
