Role at Active

As Non Executive Director at Active Gary plays an key role both internally as part of the board and management team, and externally in representing the firm.

“I joined Active as Non Executive Director because I recognised that the firm had a long history in delivering quality and professional advice to its clients and always put their interests first. In addition, Active’s focus on building long term relationships rather than short term profits means that customers and referral sources feel valued and part of a trustworthy team. Active’s focus on compliance and risk management means that it will always be well regarded by the FSA and other regulatory bodies.”

Gary’s many years of experience at a senior level at Yorkshire Bank, and extensive experience on the board of other organisations means that he can both advise and challenge the team on their journey to delivering the firm’s vision.
