Sales funnel

Meet Matthew Kwoka, Managing Director at Southern Cross Funeral Directors. Matthew's business relies on being available 24/7 to help people going through one of the worst times in their lives.

Matthew moved his business nbn® package and business phone services to Commander in 2014. Although there were some initial problems, Matthew is still with us today due to how our team worked diligently with him to work through these problems.

"All the people in the team from Commander had my back as a small business owner … I gave them a chance, and it's really paid off," says Matthew.
