Managing Director

I joined Beyond Finance in March 2013 and became Managing Director in 2015. I feel very privileged to lead such a wonderful team here where we focus on providing a financial planning service that moves people from a place of safe and predictable money talk to a place beyond finance where life is embraced to the full.

Beyond Finance means something different for each person we interact with, and it applies to everyone in our community: our clients, our team, our business partners, and our Charitable Trust.

The Beyond Finance Charitable Trust is a core part of who we are. We give a large proportion of business profits to the Trust each year to help make a difference to the most marginalised in the world. This also means that everyone in our community contributes through being associated with Beyond Finance.

I’m married to Liz, who co-ordinates the work of the Charitable Trust and we have three school-aged children. We are regular attenders of our local church and I enjoy a wide range of sport. I run and cycle, which helps maintain my fitness to play touch rugby for a local team on Wednesday evenings. I enjoy a pint of IPA in the clubhouse with the players afterwards! Every other year I embark on an endurance challenge to raise money for charities, in addition to those supported by the Charitable Trust.
