Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management
As a Liverpool fan from a very early age it seems that John had a plan. It used to upset him that he was born, bred and lived in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire…which Google says is 275.8 miles from Anfield. But his plan came to fruition in 2009 when he married a Liverpool girl and moved North.
After leaving school at 16, John considered college, but opted to work at Tesco for four years, progressing from shelf stacking to stock control. But at the age that many are in the final straight of their formal education he decided to start a career and applied to Nationwide for a job as a cashier. From then on in – and deciding just a few months into the job that he could progress – John trained and completed all of his exams to achieve mortgage adviser status, followed very quickly by qualification as a financial adviser. In fact, as John still proudly states, “I was one of the youngest financial advisers in the Nationwide at 23.”
Not only was John one of the youngest, that part of his career stretched through 17 years, until he joined Bright Wealth Management as an Adviser in 2016.
Now an adopted Northerner, John’s time is taken up with a very young daughter Stella and…of course…matches at Anfield. Although he reminisces of another passion which he and his wife Laura indulged in, before parenthood temporarily postponed activities - travel. Maybe it was that fleeting decision back when John opted for a day job, rather than studying Travel and Tourism at college when he was 16 that sowed the seeds. He cites the West Coast of America and the Far East amongst his and Laura’s favourite destinations although, as he states, “You always have to come back to work eventually.”
