I joined the team at Active Mortgage Services in 2014. My background in Financial Advice has mainly been linked to estate agents. Having spent 25 years in the industry I recently gained my Certificate in Lifetime Mortgages which allows me to deal with Equity Release enquiries.
I am a huge sports fan and a proud season ticket holder for Middlesbrough Football Club. I also enjoy mountain biking and playing football.
I realised a long time ago that a company, no matter how big or small, is a reflection of the owner, Managing Director or Founder. With this in mind I have always been passionate about providing a service that is built on integrity and trust. The challenge always becomes finding others that share your vision. I have been incredibly lucky over the years to work with some highly talented people and I think I’m happiest when I’m passing on experiences and helping people reach their potential.
You can imagine with over 40 years in the industry I have seen the financial services market change, some improvements and some catastrophes. Our philosophy has been consistent – do the very best for our clients and guess what, they will keep using you.
It’s not rocket science! As I’m nearing retirement I would like to thank all the many clients and friends that have support both me and the company. I feel confident that going forward the team are motivated by the same values that I have tried to instil.
When I am not working hard within the business I enjoy all sport, mainly football. Sadly I’m a Middlesbrough season ticket holder and we have had some lean years. We are back in the Premier League so expectation is high. I enjoy spending time with my family; I am a musician and enjoy regular visits to my second home in Lake Como
