Michelle Gianferrari

Head of Asset Finance

I joined Maia Financial late 2018 to lead the Asset Finance divisions in Australia and New Zealand. My core focus is on guiding the team to originate opportunities to finance diverse assets for new and existing clients, quickly and efficiently while building and maintaining strong relationships.

Michelle's Story

I am passionate about what I do and thrive in an environment where goals can be set and then, through inspiring great people, we can not only meet but exceed those together. I have had over 20 years’ experience within financial services.

I have gained significant strategy and sales leadership experience within Investec Private Bank and more recently Perpetual Private.

I hold a Batchelor of Business Science degree from the University of Cape Town and having lived and worked in the UK and South Africa, I am now privileged to call Australia home. I am married and a mother of two wonderful children and in our leisure time we enjoy going to the beach and playing tennis.


“Michelle is a professional of a caliber that matches no other, she knows how to get the job done, I highly recommend her.
