I started out at a Stock Broker in the city in 1985, so I’ve had over three decades working in finance. After five years in London, I moved north to work for a brokers in Manchester for thirteen years, with a specialism in overseas markets. I then set up own business in pure investment management.
I’m a member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investments and have worked for IronMarket for two years. It’s a company that does things the right way, doesn’t take any shortcuts with client service, and is adapting all the time.
This is a people business. It’s might sound a cliché, but finance isn’t just about money; there’s a real human side to it too, and it’s something that IronMarket understands and gets right. It’s important to know with regards to financial wellbeing that the straightforward route isn’t always the best one to take. Our clients trust is based on IronMarket’s track record of success.
In a way it reminds me of what I did when I set up my own company – and I love watching the company grow and grow. Wes has pulled everything together so well and it’s because the client is at the very core of everything we do. The people and clients here are great.
Motor Racing takes up a lot of my spare time, as does my seventeen year old daughter. I’m a licensed racing driver instructor and that’s something that you might see elsewhere on our website and in our offices. I like speed, and that’s why I’m really into skiing, too.
My dad. And I’d have someone from the world of motor racing, like Jim Clark. Then, I’d go for George Harrison, Meryl Streep, and Kylie!
We have a family history of pilots and have always wanted to be a pilot. I’ve done a bit of flying and really did think that one day it would be my career. I’m an unfulfilled professional pilot!
