I've spent the last 26 years in Financial Services, having worked with large, national firms before founding Landmark. My role is a strategic one, and I no longer advise clients.
My spare time is dominated by family and sport. I have two sons, Maxwell and Oliver and they keep my Wife Sally and I on our toes! I coach and (still) play cricket for Belvoir CC and I'm a big rugby fan.
I have worked in Financial Services for 29 years. I began my career with Pearl Assurance in the late 80's moving to Barclays Bank in the late 90’s. I held several senior manager positions within both organisations. After several years as a business risk consultant, I joined Landmark as Operations and Compliance Director. I am married to Laura, a very busy head teacher and we have one son James. I enjoy riding my motorcycle, at least in the summer months, spending some time in Europe each year touring.
I joined Landmark in 2004 and have worked within Financial Services for over 25 years.

I am happy to meet with clients at Rock House or at their homes to discuss their requirements.
I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2004 whilst working for KPMG. Following that I held accounting positions in the City of London and latterly for a FTSE 100 Group. I joined Landmark in 2015 to combine my experience of accountancy with my passion for advising clients on their personal finances.
I have a degree in Economics and have achieved the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning as accredited by The Chartered Insurance Institute.
I am now working towards achieving Chartered Financial Planner status. As well as being a Financial Adviser I am also the Head of Finance at Landmark IFA.
I have worked in the Financial Services industry for over 30 years, mainly within the corporate banking sector and being responsible for building successful teams. After advising clients for many years, I moved on to hold many Senior Management positions, the last being as a Tax and Trust specialist for Nationwide Building Society. In this role I was responsible for the development of Inheritance Tax and Estate Planning advice across the UK.
My role at Landmark is to ensure that our number of Advisers grows in accordance with the needs of our customer base, alongside the coaching and development of new Advisers joining the business.

I have worked for Landmark for 7 years and have 26 years’ experience in Financial services.

I have 26 years’ experience in the financial services industry and have built up a wealth of knowledge in this area to help my clients plan for their financial security whatever their needs.

Interests outside of work include all types of sport, keeping fit, cars and motorcycles.
After leaving the RAF following 14 years service, my career path took me unexpectedly into the financial services industry where I have served as an IFA for 32 years and with Landmark since 2009.
Over the many years in the industry, I have gained valuable experience in the mortgage and protection market and the retirement planning market involving pensions and investments. However, of late my preferred market is the retirement planning market involving pensions and investments especially with the coming of the "Pension Freedoms".
My clients are many and varied, young and elderly, some near some far, and working from home I am more than happy to visit clients in their own home or at their workplace.
Whilst not working, my hobbies include playing the keyboard for my local evangelical church, ten pin bowling and supporting my hometown football team Huddersfield Town

Independent Financial Adviser & Employee Benefits Specialist
I am located in Hertfordshire and have over 25 years’ experience and considerable expertise in all aspects of individual and corporate financial planning. I specialise in protection, investments, mortgages, retirement strategies and Employee Benefits.
“My aim is to actively encourage my clients to engage in the financial planning process by identifying and understanding their longer term financial objectives. This interaction enables us to build a workable financial planning strategy (together) which is unique yet robust enough to meet the challenges that life throws at us; after all, a goal without a plan is just a dream”
I have worked in the Financial Services Industry for the last 32 years, working in roles from Adviser to Senior Manager for major financial services companies such as Prudential, Barclays and Chased de Vere. This has helped me to build a wide scope of knowledge of the whole industry during that time. I have chosen to work with Landmark as they give me the opportunity to offer a true Whole Of Market Proposition to my clients and they are constantly looking to ensure that advice is always tailored to the best interests of the client.
Josh has 6 years’ experience as an Independent financial adviser, having previously worked at Chase de Vere. He takes great pride in developing strong on-going relationships with his clients and fully embraces modern financial planning methods.
Whilst he takes a fully holistic view of financial planning and can advise on all Private Wealth areas, Josh’s main specialisms include:
He holds the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning with additional qualifications in Later life advice, Mortgage advice and is a member of The Society of Trusts and Estate Planning (STEP).
Having worked in financial planning for 9 years I have a broad range of experience to best assist my clients in meeting their objectives whatever their priorities.
I take great care and pride in my work, seeking to build lasting relationships with my clients by providing clear and concise recommendations and insuring that they receive the ongoing support and advice that they need.
Over my career I have provided advice to a wide range of clients from different backgrounds and levels of financial awareness. I take a genuine interest in their plans and objectives and this has lead to many referring friends and family members.
I am able to provide advice across a full spectrum of financial needs including Investment, Retirement, Estate Planning and Protection, treating each client as an individual and putting their best interests at the forefront of what I do.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, exploring the countryside and riding my motorcycle.
I have been in the financial services industry for 15 years now and have developed a wealth of knowledge from previous companies such as Halifax and Nationwide Building Society which led me to become and IFA with Landmark IFA Ltd from June 2017.
What I love the most about what I do is building long lasting relationships with my clients and advising them through the different stages of financial planning. I provide clear, non-jargon advice that is personalised to each client. Feedback I receive is that I am able to explain and advise at any level of financial planning by being able to relate to my clients from all walks of life.
My area of expertise lay within investments, Inheritance Tax planning, retirement planning and protection.
My spare time is being a mum to my 3 year old son Archie and a wife of 13 years to my husband Ian. I also own my own horse, Milly and dog, Tilly. If there’s any time to spare I love to socialise with my family and friends, eating out and going to the races.
I have worked in Financial Services for more than a decade. The majority of my career has been working for Large Corporate Companies such as Lloyds Banking Group and Nationwide Building Society offering Financial Advice to Personal and Business Clients. However, in 2017 I decided to say goodbye to The Corporate World and join Landmark as an IFA.
I pride myself on always placing my clients at the heart of everything I do. I believe that Financial Planning starts with listening to and understanding my clients. I am then able to research solutions which are tailor-made to meet their needs.
In my view Financial Planning does not stop at the setting up of solutions. Therefore, ongoing service is of utmost importance to ensure that my clients are looked after over the future years and that their Investment move with them and their ever-changing lives.
Outside of work I spend most of my time with my Husband John and my Dog ‘Reggie the Doberman’. We live in a small village in the middle of Thetford Forest. In the Spring and Summer months we can always be found out and about exploring the Forest.
I joined Landmark in January 2018, leaving a role at Chase de Vere Independent Financial Advisers Ltd where I worked as a Paraplanner for 4 years. I have over 24 years of experience within the financial services industry working for recognised names as Nationwide Building Society and Zurich as well as Health Lambert Consulting Ltd in London. I love detail, so my position of Paraplanner at Landmark really utilises this skill-set in providing technical support in complex case planning. I enjoy the research and investigation required to support the holistic advice provided to our clients by our team of Financial Planners.
I live in North Bedfordshire and I am Mum to two teenage children which keeps me very busy but when I do have spare time I enjoy going to festivals and walking my dogs; a rescue Irish Wolfhound cross, a very feisty Parsons Terrier and a blind and fully retired Basset Hound.
Nicky has over 8 years experience in Financial Services and is working towards further qualifications to support her current role. Nicky supports Paul Ross from his home office in Bourne.
