Tom’s career in financial services began after he graduated in 2008. Following a brief spell living and working back home in Gloucester, he decided to make the move to London to see what the big smoke had to offer.
After several enjoyable years and off the back of being newly married, Tom and his Bristolian wife Lindsay decided that it was time to be closer to friends and family and set some roots here in Bristol.
After his first meeting with Chris and the Ovation team, Tom knew that this was where he needed to be!
A self-confessed pensions geek, Tom has specific expertise in helping individuals and business owners to plan for their retirement. He loves being able to help others plan for a life that they might not have thought was possible, and then seeing it all unfold.
Tom is a married father who loves spending time with his family.
Before family life took over, he was a keen rugby player. Born in Gloucester, he’s naturally a Gloucester fan (if you’re a Bristol or Bath fan, please don’t hold this against me!). He also loves cricket and attempting to play golf (but not always to a particularly good standard). In truth, he enjoys most sports, and there is rarely one that he won’t have some form of interest in.
