I joined the firm as a Partner in January 2014 as the head of our London office. Prior to this, and over the previous 26 years, I have acquired substantial professional experience as an adviser, adviser manager and senior client partner as well as holding roles as Head of Investments and Head of Training and Competence at a national firm.
As Director of Advice, I have responsibility for all our advisory team, working closely with our senior practitioners and Adviser Managers. I also oversee our talent development programme, which encompasses our Academy for Financial Planning Executives and our client proposition, ensuring we continually review how we give advice and look after clients.
I also act as an Executive Board Director for the group holding company, Advice Champion Limited (ACL), where I am responsible, with fellow directors, for the strategic direction of the group.
