I have worked in the financial service industry since leaving school in 1975. My career path has involved working for a high street bank, building society and a local IFA firm before becoming a Partner in RDB Independent LLP when we established the business in 2007..
I have a BA Degree in Business studies and am a Fellow of the Institute of Financial Services. I hold the Diploma in Financial Services and am studying for further qualifications continuously to build knowledge and skills for the challenging world of finance. Being responsible for Compliance in the firm is demanding although this is made easier by the positive ethos in the firm where all members of the team naturally treat all customers, and colleagues, fairly and with respect.
Outside of work my interests are varied including walking, cycling and charity work, amongst others.
