After three and a half years in the Royal Navy, John joined a specialist tax planning firm where he studied and achieved his advisory qualifications. Having spent five years advising in all areas of financial and wealth planning, he was a founding Director of Quest Financial Solutions which was formed in 2008. In February 2019, John and his Quest team saw an opportunity to join Progeny, where his passion for providing clients with a personal and holistic solution to their finances now continues. John is excited and proud to be a Director of this fast growing, full financial planning organisation.
John’s speciality is creating holistic solutions for his clients’ immediate needs whilst identifying their future objectives and goals (both personal and financial) through financial planning. The most important part of the job for him is bringing peace of mind and financial understanding to clients.
The youngest of five (with four sisters), John has always pushed himself physically and mentally. He has worked hard to achieve the dreams and aspirations he set out at an early age. He likes nature, the outdoors and exploring – recent trips include working on a 4th generation cowboy ranch in Montana, kayaking up the Norwegian fjords, camping in the Canadian Rockies and hiking in the French Pyrenees. He has kept bees in the past and plans to do so again in the future. The number one item on his bucket list is to walk the length of the Pacific Crest Trail.
