Our story puts the YOU in us

Securepac was established in the early-1990s by Gerry & Shirley Porter.  Gerry had started in the 'risk game' in the 1970s and after a decade of pursuing other business interests re-entered the industry in 1985 as an adviser and then into senior management positions before starting Securepac.

A family approach was entrenched in the ethos of the business with the the business operating from the family home - servicing the needs and plans of families just like theirs...

Securepac, under the guidance of Gerry & Shirley, made a name for themselves by delivering high quality advice, and professional yet friendly service. Their reputation of delivering unique and personal outcomes to their clients saw their business grow....primarily by word-of-mouth referrals.

Gerry & Shirley’s ethics and values rubbed off on all who came to be a part of the Securepac family and indeed more broadly into the industry.

Gerry successfully took the position of Director of the respected and nationally recognised Association of Financial Advisers.  He then proceeded to excel in the management and leadership of Synchron  Queensland as their Queensland State Manager.  Both roles balanced and delivered whilst still growing a successful business that put his customers at the heart of service...

In the true spirit of family centricity Gerry & Shirley took a step towards winding down a number of years ago by welcoming their youngest daughter, Leanne & her husband, Scott into their business.

Gerry was always an advocate that a the second generation management of any business would build on the foundation created by the first generation.   Leanne and Scott, through the mentorship of Gerry & Shirley, are attempting to capture this customer centric legacy and build on this to reestablish the Securepac brand.

Bringing in the varied backgrounds and expertise of both Leanne & Scott Securepac is broadening its suite of services that it can offer with the introduction of Estate and Retirement Planning.

Sadly, Gerry recently lost his battle with ill health and passed. Whilst his loss has been felt by his family and throughout the Industry that he helped shape, his customer centric ethos strongly remains within Securepac.

Shirley is the heart of the business, with her vast knowledge of the Securepac family of clients. She has and continues to be a vital cog in the wheel ensuring that our many clients receive the experience that they deserve.
