I am a main Board Director at Premier, responsible for Wealth Management / IFA services and Marketing.
I am a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society who has been working in both employee benefits and financial services for over 28 years.
As the former Head of UK Consulting for Sedgwick and then Barclays Corporate Pensions, I joined Premier in late 2006 to lead their regulated business, before being appointed as the UK Sales & Marketing Director for the wider UK organisation in January 2014.
I am still involved in the advice element of being an IFA and having worked with Employers, Pension Scheme Trustees and individual clients throughout my career, I have seen how the industry has changed over the last 25 years. Having been a speaker at numerous industry events, as well as participating on judging panels of industry awards, I am more than happy to share insight and experience.
When not involved in Wealth Management – when I come back down to earth – I’m a family man with two young sons who share my love of football, golf, skiing, holidays and nice restaurants. My support of Queens Park Rangers has been forced onto my children (although I know they say they support Liverpool FC when I am not around)!
If I could set up the perfect dinner for 4, an invitation to Churchill, Prince Phillip – the Duke of Edinburgh and Neil Armstrong please. A dinner table where the conversation could be inspiring, subtly outrageous and how we might “push the barriers” and think outside the box.
