This month the team at Pioneer Finance are celebrating a birthday milestone, we are twenty-one years old! With twenty-one years of track record, Pioneer Finance has built a legacy of consistency, trust, and dependability for our clients, and other business partners. Our mission and founding principles as a business is to deliver value and service to our customers, fuelled by a desire to be different, personable, and reasonable.

The year was 1995, we had the 1995 Rugby World Cup, Lomu scoring seven tries in five matches. The Auckland Warriors joined the NRL, and who could forget hearing television commentator Peter Montgomery’s famous line – ‘the America’s Cup is now New Zealand’s cup!’.

Amongst these sporting milestones, Pioneer Finance was born. Initially operating from our modest premises in Cambridge Terrace, downtown Wellington, in 2006 we moved across town to new Premises in Kaiwharawhara, Wellington. In early 2007, we also opened an office in South Auckland.

Some of Pioneer’s personnel have changed from time to time, but the business’s owners, have remained the same, as has its goals and principles.

As we celebrate our 21st year in the finance sector, our continuous aim is to acknowledge the trust fostered between our Customers, Employees and the Community at large, with a heart of giving back to our people.

Pioneer Finance is one big extended family, and we pride ourselves on this open, honest and transparent relationship, and we acknowledge a large number of clients who have dealt with us, for much of our existence.

Pioneer Finance has come a long way since the mid-90s, and there are plenty of chapters yet to be written!

PS. Here’s a couple of pics we dug up from the archives!
