How colleagues would describe him

Calm, considered and consistent.

Most enjoyable aspect of working at Ardent

The people (clients and colleagues) and the “can do” mentality.

Proudest achievement

Getting my commercial pilot’s licence at the age of 40. It was an ambition I never gave up on. Now I am part of a business which helps others to achieve their lifelong ambitions too.

Our Chartered Financial Planning status is an indication of our commitment to delivering the highest standards and ethical behavior. It’s our industry’s gold standard.
