Vickie Batchelor

Client Services

Vickie has the singular honour of being Ovation’s longest serving member of staff, having worked in financial services for 20 years. She has held a variety of roles with Ovation, learning more about the business over the years.

Vickie is responsible for purchasing, payments, encashments and fund movements for our clients. Liaising with clients and colleagues is her favourite part of her job.

Vickie works closely with our financial planners to make sure actions happen as and when they should. This requires her to use the skills she developed and honed to perfection in her out of work full-time role as a mother of four. After years of organising four children and their various activities, this job seems straightforward by comparison.

Outside work

Vickie enjoys running, travel, socialising and walking in her spare time (Spare time? What’s that?, she jokes).
