I joined Edward Mellor over 20 years ago as a trainee adviser and was delighted to become Head Of Financial Services in 2016.

I spend most of my time ensuring the smooth running of the team, but i do get to see the odd client which is a part of the job i still enjoy.

Across the team of Financial Advisers, Mortgage Advisers and administration support we recognize the importance of delivering the same high level of service and advice to each individual client regardless of their needs or circumstances. This caring approach forms the cornerstone of our business.

Away from the office I spend the majority of my time with my family, although I do find time for the occasional game of golf.
