“I am delighted to be part of the management team at a time when there are huge changes in the financial services market, in particular the pensions arena. I am keen to ensure that we continue to provide outstanding customer service coupled with developing financial planning strategies for new and existing clients to ensure that we fulfil our clients’ full financial promise.”
