As part of our ‘Meet the Team’ series, we’re introducing you to one of our Directors, Martin Howe.
During lockdown and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which is making ‘face-to-face’ meetings impossible, and we’re all used to meeting each other as pixels on Zoom now, we thought it’d be great to give you a little insight into all of our team from their lockdown bases.
Martin has over 20 years’ experience in financial services, specialising in all areas of financial planning.
In his spare time, Martin likes to keep fit by running and has completed four marathons, including the London Marathon – twice! His family are also football enthusiasts, being Sunderland AFC season ticket holders.
