Senior Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management
Michelle Smith Cert CII (FS) - Client Services Team
Michelle originates and still lives in the Potteries region. Attending St. Joseph’s College throughout her education from primary through to Sixth Form College, her foray into Manchester university life was, she admits, unfulfilling. Although she had a good time as all students should. Studying for a degree in business studies was curtailed at the end of her second year when she returned to Stoke and found work in a cinema, where she found, “Friends that are still my friends now.”
Michelle’s story continued as her older sister, a Santander employee to this day, encouraged her to start out on a career course and introduced her to the banking life at a branch in Northwich, although she had been interviewed in Crewe. The Northwich Santander team, she relates, “Hid me for a while, because my job hadn’t been sanctioned by the Regional Manager! But after a while they brought me out of hiding, the Manager was happy and I was given a position in the Crewe branch.”
Michelle soon graduated to the position of Assistant Manager, having passed her adviser training and now working with clients across the Crewe, Stoke on Trent and Newcastle under Lyme areas. In 2015 Michelle decided that it was time to develop her career, moving to Bright Wealth Management and coincidentally reuniting her with colleagues from her time at Santander. Working closely with clients, Michelle will bring her expertise in liaison and financial administration to the Bright Client Services Team.
